The Federal Government of Nigeria has cautioned government employees working under civil servant not to join the arranged strike by labour union across the nation planned to start on Monday September 28.

Head of civil service Folasade Yemi-Esan, in an announcement delivered late on Friday September 25, said that the laborers can’t set out on the strike on the grounds that there is a court order controlling them from making such move.

She included that the national government is in chats with the labour union towards guaranteeing that all tumults by the laborers are settled.

The announcement read;

“Sequel to the call by the Labour Unions for workers to embark on industrial action from Monday, 28th September, 2020, the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) wishes to inform all public servants that the Federal Government team is currently engaging with the Labour Unions with a view to resolving all contentious issues and avert the planned industrial action.

“Furthermore, it is important to note that there is a court injunction granted by the National Industrial Court (Suit No. NICN/ABJ/253/2020) on 24th September, 2020, restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress of Nigeria from embarking on any form of industrial action pending the hearing and determination of a Motion on Notice.

“Accordingly, all officers on Grade Level 12 and above and those on essential services are hereby strongly advised to be at work to perform their official duties.”
