Ogun Judicial Workers Suspend Strike, Re-open Courts On Monday

Leadership of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) in Ogun State has ordered the re-opening of courts for next week Monday, following the suspension of the six weeks old strike by the workers, in  protest against the short payment of their salaries by the State Government

The State Chairman of the union, Comrade Tajudeen Edun announced the suspension  on Thursday to newsmen , shortly after a meeting held at the Governor's Office in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, between JUSUN leaders and top officials of the State Government led by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, supported by the Head of Service, Mrs. Selimot Ottun, during which government agreed to restore the implementation of the special salary structure for the judicial workers 
 "I want to say that the industrial action that commenced on the 11 of August, 2021, is now suspended. I want to call on all judiciary workers in Ogun State to prepare themselves and resume fully,", he stated

According to him ," there was series of meetings before the issue was finally resolved on Thursday. There was an agitation from the cut of our salary. We have reached an agreement with the government to resume work after striking for less than two months. The State Government has accepted our demands and we also agreed to what government asked from us".

Edun who appreciated the efforts of government  at resolving the matter amicably, says his members have resolved to work with the present administration to take the State to greater heights.
