A Brief Legal Reflection on the Recognition of Trade Unions under the Law in Nigeria



It is considered pertinent to take a brief legal reflection on the recognition of trade unions in Nigeria. The aim of this study is to assess the contributions made by the court in the settlement of labour disputes in the area of recognition of trade unions, towards cordial and peaceful industrial relations for maximum production and supply of goods and services. This research work will further discuss the economic impact of adjudication of  labour disputes by the National Industrial Court in Nigeria. The justification for this research stems from the fact that addressing labour issues are vital to the development and growth of any nation. No matter how well-endowed a country is in terms of natural resources, this will be of no importance to the country if they are not efficiently tapped. Without labour, resources and services cannot be harnessed for the society.

Keywords: Trade union, Recognition, Trade disputes, National Industrial Court.
