Judiciary Workers Begin Strike Over Short Payment of Salaries in Ogun


The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, Ogun branch, has begun an indefinite strike over short payment of salaries by the state government.

The state JUSUN Chairman, Edun Tajudeen, said that the strike was in compliance with the National secretariat directive to begin the strike on August 11.

Mr Tajudeen noted that before the decision to embark on the strike a series of meetings had been held with representatives of the state government but ended in a deadlock.

He said: “We noticed the short payments in our salaries since October 2020.

“This strike we are embarking is an indefinite strike because, on Feb. 24, we gave the state government an ultimatum to pay us our full salaries before the nationwide strike on autonomy began.

“After the strike, the meeting continued with the government but it did not yield any result,” he said.

The JUSUN chairman, however, appealed to the state government to look into the requests of the workers and do the needful.
According to reports, the courts were under lock and key and nobody is allowed to gain entrance into the court premises.
