The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), or any of its agents or affiliates, have been forbidden by a national industrial court from beginning or continuing any strike action in Imo State.
According to Newsmen, the restraining order was issued while the motion on notice for an interim injunction filed in the lawsuit was being heard and decided.
Justice Nelson Ogbuanya put his signature on the temporary injunction.
The court ordered the NLC and TUC and any of its affiliates to refrain from interfering with the delivery of services and other work by their members in the civil and public service in Imo while the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction filed in the suit.
In the event that prompt service of court documents and the interim order cannot be effected on the trade unions as required by order 7 rule 1 (1)(h)(ii) of the rules of civil procedure, the court ordered the applicant, the Imo State Government, to serve the originating summons, motions on notice, and other processes in the suit on the defendants, NLC and the TUC, along with the interim order granted.
The judge further extended the return date for the case’s hearing and court proceedings to May 11, 2023.
