The paper examined the decision in Osoh and Ors Vs. Unity Bank Plc. which distilled common law principle on collective agreement vis-à-vis the extant provisions of the said Trade Disputes Act 1990 and finds that in the said Osoh’s case, the trial, lower and Supreme Courts failed to address the extant requirements for enforcement at law of a collective agreement but rather relied heavily on common law principle which regards collective agreement as a gentleman agreement.
