The union urged its members to remain calm, adding that its lawyer is already filing an appeal on the matter.

The statement read: “Our Comrade President, Victor Osodeke, has urged members of our Great Union to remain calm as there is no cause for alarm on the back-to-work order delivered earlier today.

“Our lawyer is filing an appeal and stay of execution of the judgment. Members should remain resolute and strong. A united people can never be defeated. Solidarity without compromise.”

Justice Polycarp Hamman had earlier on Wednesday ordered the striking lecturers to end their seven-month-old strike, saying the industrial action violated Section 18 (1) (2) of the Trade Disputes Act.
