BREAKING: Court stops labour’s strike – see court document


A National Industrial Court sitting in Abuja has retrained the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress from embarking on any form of strike until the hearing and determination of the suit brought by the Federal Government.

The labour unions have threatened to embark on an indefinite strike from Wednesday over the removal of subsidy on petrol as announced by President Bola Tinubu during his inauguration speech.

Over the weekend, the NLC shunned a meeting convened by the government, insisting that there is no going back on the strike except petrol subsidy is restored.

The suite which was brought by the federal government and the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice sought an interim injunction barring the unions from any form of strike.

The court ordered that the respondents be immediately served with the originating processes in the suit and the orders made by the court.

The court fixed the 19th of June for hearing.

Here are the court papers:
