Written by Chukwuma Obiasia

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), have been stopped by the Industrial Court from staging a strike.

The interim order granted by the National Industrial Court restrained the union officers, affiliates and privies.

Justice Ibrahim Galadima said on Thursday that the interim order was made pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

The court similarly restrained the Unions, their officers, affiliates, privies from stopping ordinary Nigerians from accessing their offices to carry out their legitimate duties on the 28th of September 2020 or on any other date.

Justice Galadima made the order sequel to an ex-parte application filed by the Incorporated Trustees of Peace and Unity Ambassadors Association through their counsel, Sunusi Musa.

Also the court ordered the Police and DSS to provide protection for workers engaged in their legitimate duties from any form of harassment or intimidation pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.
