Court Stops NLC, TUC From Embarking On Nationwide Strike

On Friday, the National Industrial Court prohibited the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), and their affiliates from initiating any strikes.

The court, led by President Justice Benedict Bakwaph Kanyip, issued the order, stopping the planned nationwide strike scheduled to start on November 14.

The decision, based on an ex-parte application from the Federal Government and the Attorney General of the Federation, cited potential hardships on citizens and businesses.

Justice Kanyip invoked sections 17 and 19 of the National Industrial Court Act to justify the restraining order, emphasizing the court’s role in maintaining peace.

The order was to be prominently displayed at the last known addresses of the unions, and the case file was transferred to Justice Olufunke Anuwe for further proceedings.
