The National Industrial Court, Abuja, has fixed July 5, for hearing of a suit filed by Mohammed Aliyu and 21 other disengaged workers’ of Dangote Cement Transport Limited.
The aggrieved workers, who were mechanics at the Obajana branch of the company, took the company to court over alleged unlawful dismissal.
The workers were allegedly dismissed from the company on September 6,2015 over an alleged restructuring.
The workers prayed the court to set aside the dismissal as improper and unlawful.
The disengaged workers also prayed the court to order the respondent, to pay their entitlements and other benefits.
The claimants also prayed the court to prevail on the respondent to pay them damages for the alleged unlawful dismissal.
The judge, Justice Edith Agbakoba, fixed the date to enable one of the claimants’ witnesses testify.
Earlier, two of the witnesses, Christopher Okamson and Mohammed Aliyu, had told the court to use their statements on oath as evidence.
The claimants were represented in court by their counsel, C. Amodu, while the respondent was represented by Noah Abdul.
