Striking workers of the Ondo State Judiciary have
called off the industrial action.
In a statement released on Sunday, May 31, the state
Chairman of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria
(JUSUN), Femi Ogunode, said the union called off the
strike after reaching an agreement with the state
government on the issues that led to the action.
The union has battled the government over the financial
independence of the judiciary, based on a subsisting
court judgement.
JUSUN embarked on the strike on January 5 following
government’s refusal to agree to the demand for
compliance with the court judgement.
“The union and the state government signed a
Memorandum of Understanding based on certain
agreements and so the strike has been called off,”
Ogunode said.
Reacting to the development, a member of the union,
Christopher Ayebola said the union members are happy
to get back to work. “We are happy that after four
months of being at home, the strike has been called
off. I can tell you that I will be the first at work on
Monday,” he said.
