In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on 3news.com, the injunction was brought before the court by the National Labour Commission (NLC).

Lawyer for UTAG Kwesi Keli-Deletaa said the motion was seeking to enforce the directive of the Labour Commission, which was filed before the injunction application was filed.

“In our view, the main motion which is seeking to enforce the directive of the NLC should have been heard first but the judge thought otherwise and decided that the injunction application should be heard first and the outcome of that application is what you all witnessed in court today, the judge decided to grant the interlocutory injunction application,” Kwesi Keli-Deletaa noted.
