Judicial workers down tools Monday

By Valentine Amanze

Workers of the Federal High Court across Nigeria will on Monday September 28, 2020, begin a two-week strike.

The workers, on the platform of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), stated in Abuja on Friday that they were abandoning their duties in line with the industrial action planned by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to begin on Monday.

The NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have threatened to embark on an industrial action in protest of the recent increases in the prices of electricity and petroleum products.

The unsigned notice of the Judiciary workers reads: “Please be informed that the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Federal High Court chapter shall, in collaboration with the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), commence a two-week indefinite strike action from Monday the 28th day of September 2020.

“All offices shall remain closed within this period. You are required to comply.”
