No pressure should halt the strike – JUSUN orders members
Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria has called on its members nationwide to continue with the industrial action. JUSUN rolled out the directive as a result of the collapse of negotiations on the way forward out of the trade dispute.
The directive was made known 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.
The circular reads 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 organize 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.”
It was gathered by The Ravens NG that the judiciary workers had, on April 6, embarked on an indefinite nationwide strike demanding enforcement of constitutional provisions and court judgments granting financial autonomy to the judiciary at both the state and federal levels.
