JUSUN: Rivers workers withdraw from nationwide strike

NEWSMAN, Port Harcourt, – Judiciary workers in Rivers State are expected to resume work soon after several weeks of strike action called by the National Leadership of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

This follows a meeting between members of the Rivers State chapter of JUSUN and the newly sworn-in Chief Judge of the state, Justice Simeon Amadi.

Rivers state leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) was also part of the meeting which was held on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

Shortly after the meeting, the Branch Chairman of the NBA, Prince Onyekwere, released a statement, disclosing that the deliberations during the meeting were “cordial”, leading to a “fruitful outcome”.

According to Onyekwere, the JUSUN members “agreed to call off the strike” which had for about two months paralysed court activities in the state.

The latest development comes one week after Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, threatened to apply the principle of no-work, no-pay on the striking judiciary workers if they fail to call off the strike by the end of May.

The judiciary and parliamentary workers in Nigeria had in April , 2021 embarked on a nationwide strike over the non implementation of financial autonomy in the state judiciary and legislatures by state governors, Daily Post reported.

Governor Wike had insisted that his administration had commenced the implementation of the financial autonomy for the judiciary even before the strike by the JUSUN members.
