Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria has said that it only suspended the strike, stating that the action will resume if agreements are not met after few months.
Recall that JUSUN’s strike, which, was declared on April 6, 2021, lasted for two months before it was suspended. Workers have since been directed to commence work on June 14.
JUSUN Chairman in Cross River State, Ebong Asanya, said that the judicial workers’ union had agreed on the suspension at the end of the National Executive Council meeting.

However, Asanya regretted the lingering non-implementation of the financial independence of the judiciary.
“National Judicial Commission and Chief Justices prevailed on us to suspend the strike considering the suffering of the people.
“But if the implementation is not adequately followed, we may have no look for other options than to resume the strike. So we only suspend it, not call it off,” he said.
