Judiciary workers under the aegis of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria have threatened to resumed their nationwide strike over alleged unwillingness of state governments to implement court judgment barring piece-meal funding of the nation’s judiciary.
The union, which suspended its three weeks strike in July, took the decision to resume the industrial action at an emergency meeting of its National Executive Council on Saturday.
A communiqué jointly signed by the union’s President, Marwan Adamu, and its General Secretary, Isaiah Adetola, was released to journalists on Sunday.
The union said it chose December 1 to resume the strike because it decided to grant the seven days requested by the stakeholders who assured the union’s officials of readiness to implement the court judgment.
The stakeholders were said to have demanded the seven days at the last of the series of meetings held with the union on November 19.
