The National Union of Food, Beverage and Tobacco Employees (NUFBTE) on Friday confirmed that Lacasera Company Plc has reinstated the 700 workers it sacked in September.

Mr. Mike Olarenwaju, Head of Education Department in NUFBTE, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Olarenwaju said that the management of the company met with union members to resolve the issues in dispute and that the workers had been asked to start work.

He said that officials of the union would meet with the workers next week to finalise issues with the in-house union.

NAN recalls that Lacasera management had disengaged the workers over the alleged invasion the premises by hoodlums.

The 1,300 workers, consisting of 700 staff members and 600 casuals workers, arrived at the office on Sept. 14 to find information pasted on the gate that their jobs had been terminated.

The union officials picketed the company for unlawful sack and denial of the workers’ right to be unionised.

The company had before the incident filed a motion at the National Industrial Council (NIC) where the union also took the case to.

After hearing the matter, the court granted the union its plea for an Order of Interim injunction restraining the management from terminating the appointments of the workers till the determination of the suit.

‎The court decision signed by the honourable judge, Justice O.A. Obaseki- Osaghae, however directed that all parties “maintain the peace and take no action that will lead to a breakdown of law and order.”

The case was adjourned to Oct. 19 for hearing of the two pending motions. (NAN)
