The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) on Wednesday reviewed its 44-day-old nationwide strike and vowed to continue the crippling industrial action until its demand is met.
Courts at both the state and federal levels have been paralysed across the country since when the strike began on April 6.
JUSUN’s resolution to continue the strike on Wednesday’s comes barely 24 hours after the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Muhammad, appealed to the union to return to work.
The resolution also comes on the heels of the union’s April 8 resolution rejecting the 36 state governors’ proposed template for the implementation of the judiciary’s financial autonomy which the workers are pressing for.
