This move is a crucial step in the ongoing process of determining a new national minimum wage, which has been a topic of discussion recently.
Earlier today, members of the tripartite committee, comprising the federal government and labour unions, resumed talks on a new national minimum wage.
Labour unions had on Monday embarked on a nationwide strike action to force government’s hand in implementing a new national minimum wage for workers. They were persuaded to call it off for one week while negotiations continue.
