The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), says it will implement the national minimum wage for workers in the territory to avert another strike.
Hajia Ramatu Aliyu, FCT Minister of State, disclosed this in a statement issued by her Special Assistant on Media, Mr Austin Elemue, on Tuesday in Abuja.
NAN reports that primary school teachers in the FCT and the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees recently embarked on industrial action over the non-implementation of the National Minimum Wage.
However, the minister assured that the administration was addressing the issue to avert another action.
“Let me state that immediately after the two unions threatened to embark on the strike, we engaged all stakeholders with a view to finding a solution to the problem.
“This led to the constitution of a Multi-Stakeholder Ministerial Committee on the implementation of the new National Minimum wage in area councils and local education authorities of the six area councils.
“Currently, the cheering news is that the striking teachers and local government workers have agreed to call off the strike and allow for processes that will provide a permanent solution to the problem,” she said.
