La Casera fails to comply with NIC order

The Management of La Casera company Plc has defied the ruling of National Industrial Court, NIC that ordered the company to reabsorb the sacked 700 workers some days ago.
the Head of Education Department, National Union of Food Beverage and Tobacco Employees, (NUFBTE), Mr Mike Olanrewaju, revealed that the company has failed to adhere to the NIC order “The La Casera management has not recalled the affected workers since the court gave the order on Sept. 17, but they are making efforts to settle issues with us.’’ said Mike.
Speaking further, Olanrewaju said the union would hold a meeting before taking any action, while it would also wait for the court to hear the case. The NIC had granted the union its plea for an order of interim injunction restraining La Casera management through suit no. NICN/LA/416/2015 in the Lagos Judicial Division.
The court’s decision signed by Justice O.A. Obaseki- Osaghae reads in part:“All parties are to maintain peace and take no action that will lead to a breakdown of law and order.” Meanwhile, the company has filed an application to counter the motion at the same court.
The application was ahead of the management’s meeting with the union and the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity, Abuja, for a possible reconciliation. Hearing of the two pending motions has been fixed for Oct. 19.
It will be recalled that the management of La Casera, reportedly, on Sept. 14 dismissed 700 workers based on what it described as invasion of its premises by hoodlums.
