The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) in Nasarawa State has suspended its four months old strike after entering an agreement that culminated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Nasarawa State Government.
Mr. Jemo Musa, chairman of the union in the state, told journalists on Tuesday in Lafia that JUSUN suspended the strike due to a commitment made by the government.
The union leader said though their demands have not been met yet, the union suspended the strike “because of the appeal and intervention by stakeholders caused us to shift ground for now.
“The government and other stakeholders of the union appealed to the union to call off the strike considering the ongoing financial crisis in the country,” the JUSUN leader said.
THISDAY check revealed that some of the demands of the union included financial autonomy for the judiciary and better working welfare packages for judiciary workers. The terms of the MOU included the state government increasing the allocation to the judiciary.
While calling on all members of JUSUN to resume work immediately, the chairman affirmed: “The government had also agreed to release to the judiciary all monies allocated to it in the 2015 budget.”
He also expressed hope that the resolution of the industrial crisis would enhance the dispensation of justice in the state.
