Ogun JUSUN Begins Indefinite Strike Over Salary Dispute
The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, Ogun State Branch, have embarked on an indefinite strike over short payment of salaries by the state government.
The Ogun State JUSUN Chairman, Comrade Edun Tajudeen, while speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta, said the strike was in compliance with the National Secretariat’s directive to begin the strike on the eleventh day of August.
Comrade Tajudeen noted that series of meetings had been held with representatives of the state government which ended in a deadlock before the decision to embark on industrial action.
The JUSUN chairman, however, appealed to the state government to look into the requests of the workers and do the needful.
A visit to the state Magistrate and High Courts at Isabo and the new Judiciary Complex along Abeokuta-Sagamu road revealed that the courts were under lock and key, while the union leaders were on hand at the entrances disallowing people from gaining entrance into the court premises.
