Wabba said that the organised labour has got firm commitment from the government, that the Tripartite Committee of the Minimum Wage Committee would reconvene on October 4.
“We demand that this shall be the final session of the committee and a final report will be submitted to Mr President immediately.
“In order to avail the committee of the necessary conducive environment to hold this crucial meeting and conclude it’s work, organised labour has… decided to suspend the strike action with effect from today, Sunday September 30, 2018,” he said.
