Nearly always. A strike or Lock Out is Unlawful In Nigeria

Abstract

This paper examines the lawfulness of strikes within the framework of statutory provisions delineating the boundaries of industrial action and the immunities available under Nigerian statute law for torts committed by trade unions and their officials in the course of a trade dispute. It observes that lawful strikes are virtually impossible in this country notwithstanding its democratic ideals. Whilst the constitution guarantees freedom of association and the right to join or form a trade union, existing statutory provisions negate the exercise of trade union activity in the form of strikes or lockouts. The paper advocates a change of the existing legal regime in favour of one that meaningfully recognizes the right to strike and lockout and facilitates its exercise.
