The judiciary workers in Ebonyi state have suspended the indefinite strike they initially embarked on to demand the implementation of a consolidated judiciary salary structure by the state government.
The suspension of the strike was
made at a press briefing in Abakaliki by the National Organizing Secretary of
Judiciary staff union, Prince Chinedu Eze, who explained that the decision to
suspend the strike was as a result of the coming together of several
stakeholders on the matter. He said that the suspension of the strike action
would provide an opportunity for the state government to further examine the
demands of the workers and address areas of concern.
Chairman of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria in Ebonyi State Comrade Nnachi Oko stated that the workers will accept any decision reached by the national leadership and commended the members for supporting the industrial action. It will be noted that judiciary workers in Ebonyi state had embarked on an indefinite strike on the 13th of August after their negotiations with the state government on the implementation of the CONJUSS collapsed.
