The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has said it would no longer respect what it described as “frivolous injunctions” issued by judges allegedly carrying out the biddings of the executive.
Raising concerns over the frequency of such injunctions which has restrained Congress from freely protesting unfavorable policies of government and exercising their right, President of the NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero in a statement on Friday in Abuja, called on both the Supreme Court and the National Judicial Council (NJC), to sanction erring judges.
He added that the workers protesting against unfavourable government policy is the right of the workers as contained in the provisions of ILO Conventions, Trade Union Act, Trade Dispute Act, the 1999 Constitution, the African Charter on Human Rights and other legal instruments.
