“A joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect,” the source said.

The strike, which commenced on Monday, entered the second day on Tuesday.

The Federal Government on Monday expressed commitment to raise the N60, 000 offered as minimum wage after a meeting with the leadership of organised labour.

Further, the TUC president Festus Osifo confirmed this in Abuja on Tuesday after a joint extraordinary national executive council meeting of the unions.

“A joint NEC meeting of TUC/NLC has approved to relax the industrial action for one week with immediate effect,” Osifo told Channels Television.

A communique will be issued shortly, the labour chief said.

Both unions downed tools on Monday to register their grievances over the hike in electricity tariff and lack of consensus on a new minimum wage.
