Court restates order stopping NLC, TUC strike


NLC strikeThe National Industrial Court on Monday declared that the order barring the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress from embarking on their planned strike subsists.

The court, as a result, ordered the parties to maintain the status quo and adjourned the matter until July 20, for a hearing.

Recall that on June 7, the NLC and TUC had planned to embark on a nationwide strike in protest of the fuel subsidy removal.

The Federal Government, in reaction, instituted a suit to stop both unions, stating that the proposed strike might gravely affect the larger society and the well-being of the nation at large.

Justice O.Y. Anuwe, while ruling on an ex parte application filed before the court by the Federal Government, ordered the unions not to embark on their planned industrial action or strike of any nature pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice dated June 5, 2023.

The court on Monday adjourned further proceedings till June 20.
