In Meeting With NBA, JUSUN Accepts Suspending Strike Subject to Guarantees From Governors


THE Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has reportedly accepted proposals made by Nigerian governors in their quest for a resolution of the industrial crisis caused by the clamour by judicial workers for the implementation of financial autonomy for the judicial arm of government; reports TheNigeriaLawyer, an online publication.

The report stated that JUSUN accepted the proposal during a meeting between its leaders and the representatives of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), which held on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, in Abuja. The publication quoted a source as stating that JUSUN has agreed to call off the strike subject to few clarifications and guarantee from the governors.

“The purpose of the working meeting was to mutually consider the new proposals from the governors with a view to harmonising views and having common grounds on the issues at stake.

“The meeting accepted the proposals of the governors in principle subject however to few clarifications and expected guarantees from the federal government for the strike to be called off. The said clarifications are necessary to arrive at a final agreement to be signed by all stakeholders.

“JUSUN has agreed to call off the strike immediately the clarifications sought are made, the expected guarantees given by the federal government and a final agreement for the implementation of Section 121(3) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is signed,” The paper quoted its source as stating.

He explained further that JUSUN will make a statement on this position soon and hopefully, the strike action may be called off in days.

He added, “We therefore positively look forward to the all conciliatory/mediatory meeting earlier slated for today to be rescheduled by the Minister of Labour.”
