JUST IN: Court stops TUC, NLC from embarking on strike
The National Industrial Court (NIC) has restrained the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) as well as their affiliates from embarking on any strike or industrial action.
The unions had, after an extraordinary National Executive Council meeting on Tuesday in Abuja, declared a total nationwide strike from November 14, 2023.
The unions took the decision following the alleged assault on the NLC National President, Joe Ajaero, last week in Imo state.
However, the Federal Government and the Attorney General of the Federation, and the Minister of Justice filed an ex-parte application praying the court to stop the unions from embarking on the planned strike.
President of the Court, Justice Benedict Kanyip, on Friday ordered the unions to stop their planned nationwide strike.
