BREAKING: Court Halts NLC, TUC’s Planned Strike

The National Industrial Court of Nigeria has ordered the organised labour, comprising the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress not to proceed on its indefinite strike scheduled to commence on November 6.

Justice Sanusi Kado, on Friday, gave the judgement in a ruling on an ex parte application moved on behalf of the Federal Government by the Solicitor-General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Mr. Dayo Apata.

Agreeing with Apata, Justice Kado ruled that if the strike proceeds, it would lead to huge economic loss to both public and private institutions and could endanger the health of many Nigerians who would not be able to access health facilities during the period.

The organised labour had threatened to go an indefinite strike action to press for the increase in the national minimum wage from the current N18,000 to N30,000.

The last meeting of the three-party negotiation committee on the minimum wage had ended in standstill after the Federal Government insisted that it could only afford to pay N25,000, while the governors held on to N22,500 and the labour N30,000.

Justice Kado adjourned the case till November 8 for the hearing of the motion on notice seeking the interlocutory injunction to stop the strike.

The judge ordered that the court order and other papers be filed on all the defendants.
