Judiciary Workers Suspend Strike

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has suspended its strike.

This was disclosed in a communique issued by the union and signed by the Deputy President, Emmanuel Abioye; and the General Secretary, Isaiah Adetola after its emergency National Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.

Judiciary workers had embarked on an indefinite nationwide strike on April 6 in protest against the denial of the judiciary its constitutionally guaranteed financial autonomy which was also affirmed by a Federal High Court in January 2014.

The strike had crippled activities at the courts and caused overcrowding at police detention facilities across the country as the police and other law enforcement agencies were unable  to arraign suspects in courts.

The union is set to commence work on Monday.
