The National Industrial Court has approved an interim injunction preventing the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) from embarking on a nationwide strike.
The strike action by the NLC and TUC which was slated for September 28 has been prevented by the court.
On Thursday, Justice Ibrahim Galadima said the order was pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.
Galadima also granted an interim order restraining the unions, their officers, affiliates, privies from preventing workers and other Nigerians from accessing their offices from Monday.
He approved an order compelling the Inspector General of Police and the Director-General, Department of State Services (DSS), to protect workers engaged in their legitimate duties from harassment, intimidation and bullying by NLC and TUC.
The order followed an ex-parte application filed by the Incorporated Trustees of Peace and Unity Ambassadors Association through their counsel, Sunusi Musa.
