Reject pressure from govs, continue your strike, JUSUN urges members

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has called on its members nationwide to shun pressure from state governors and continue with the industrial action.

According to Union, the directive followed the collapse of negotiations on the way forward out of the trade dispute.

The directive, which was contained in a circular signed by the Deputy National Secretary of JUSUN, P. Nnamani, issued on April 16 and addressed to its National Executive Council and all members nationwide, was obtained by journalists on Friday.

The JUSUN expressed the appreciation of its National Chairman, Marwan Adamu, to members for their spirit of solidarity and comradeship exhibited in the industrial action.

The circular read in part, “You are by this notice informed that the industrial action continues as the Federal Government and the governors are yet to find the grounds of meeting with our demands. We are aware of the threats and pressure that may come from the ‘governors’ but please be resolute.

“Further, be informed that following an emergency meeting of the NWC on April 15, 2021, it is agreed that the union would organise a ‘peaceful protest’ in the Federal Capital, which will be replicated in the 36 states capital in furtherance of our agitations, from April 19, 2021.”

Recall OejNews reported that judiciary workers had, on April 6, embarked on an indefinite nationwide strike demanding an enforcement of constitutional provisions and court judgments granting financial autonomy to the judiciary at both the state and federal levels.

Several meetings held between the leadership of JUSUN with the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad; the Nigerian Governors Forum; Nigerian Bar Association; the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; and some members of the House of Representatives failed to end the strike.
