COURT ORDERS ASUU TO RETURN TO WORK

The National Industrial Court has ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to return to work.

Justice Polycarp Hamman on Wednesday held that the strike was a breach of the Section 18(1)(2) of the Trade Disputes Act, which prohibits their action.

He said the use of “shall” in the Act connotes mandatory provision not to embark on the strike pending the determination of the main suit before the court.

The judge noted that the strike has caused irreparable damage to the careers of many students in Nigeria.

Justice Hamman referred the case to the president of the court for reassignment.

The federal government, in a suit, had prayed for the order for ASUU to call off its seven months strike.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, on behalf of the federal government, had filed the matter before the court by way of referral to resolve the issue of the ongoing strike by ASUU.
