This is sequel to the agreement reached between the Rivers State Government and Labour at a meeting held at Government house.
The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, read the agreement. He said the Parties agreed to sign the agreement on the implementation of the new national minimum wage and consequential adjustments.
Comrade Wabba announced that the State NLC secretariat will be unsealed while Government continues with refurbishment work.
He stated that the State Government would immediately restore the remittance of check-off dues. They would also pay all outstanding arrears to the respective Labour Unions.
According to him, Government would pay the salaries withheld from health workers due to the 2017 strike action.
NLC President also said the Parties agreed to set up a Tripartite Committee. The committee’s task will be to resolve the adjustment of pensions and payment of Pension and Gratuity.
Parties, he said, agreed to take steps to discontinue all on-going litigations in relation to hitherto disputed matters.
Wabba added that no worker will be victimised on account of his or her involvement in the industrial dispute.
