The National Industrial Court in Ikoyi has directed the Staff Unions of the Lagos State Polytechnic to suspend the strike action embarked upon on August 1.

This court ruling was given on Tuesday by the Hon. Justice F. I. Kola-Olalere pending the hearing and determination of the unions’ notice and preliminary objection to the notice of interlocutory injunction by the Lagos State Government.

Last week, the state government took the agitating staff unions of the institution to court to stop them from continuing their industrial action. Responding to this, the unions filed a Statement of Defence and preliminary objection last Friday.

While declaring the court ruling, Justice Kola-Olalere, who adjourned the hearing of the preliminary objection to September 27, directed the parties involved to explore amicable resolution of the issues before the adjourned date in line with the provision of Section 20 of the NIC Act, 2016

Recently, the Lagos State government increased the monthly subvention of its tertiary institution, while paying staff salaries as at when due. It said it was committed to entrenching stability in the institutions with the aim of ensuring that students, as well as faculty and staff, can freely pursue the transformative innovation, and research that would ensure the continued prosperity of the state and the country, as a whole.

Lagos State Government reiterates her commitment to resolving and finding a lasting solution to the issues raised by the Unions.
