THE National Industrial Court (NIC) has restrained organised labour from embarking on industrial action over the removal of fuel subsidy.
The Federal Government obtained the order restraining the unions from embarking on any form of strike on Monday.
Ruling on an exparte application filed before the court, Justice O.Y. Anuwe ordered the unions not to embark on their planned industrial action or strike of any nature pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice dated June 5, 2023.
The court also directed that the defendants be immediately served with the originating processes in the suit filed as it fixed June 19 for hearing.
Recall that the NLC has fixed an industrial action against the removal of subsidy petrol by the Federal Government on Wednesday, calling out its workers to comply.
