After about five hours of horse trading between the organised labour and the federal government team on the proposed indefinite strike slated to commence October 3, labour has suspended the strike for 30 days.
Before the agreement was reached, the organised labour had threatened to pull out of the meeting following the government insistence that the N35, 000 Provisional salary increment would only last for six months.
The labour had accused the government team of reneging on what was agreed on Sunday night to the effect that the N35, 000 Provisional salary increment which is across board, would be paid till when new minimum wage would be negotiated and implemented from next year.
But reading the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, at the end of the meeting which ended about 11pm, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong, said the Organised labour has suspended the planned indefinite strike for 30 days.
The MoU also mandated the Minister of Labour to look into the withheld salaries of university staff.
