The Ogun State chapter of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) called off its two-month-long strike Wednesday.
The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, disclosed the action of the judicial workers after a meeting between the government and the Chairman of the union, Mr. Tajudeen Edun.
The Chief Press Secretary to the state Governor, Dapo Abiodun, Mr. Kunle Somorin, in a statement said the meeting that led to the suspension of the strike was held at Oke-Mosan in Abeokuta, which was also attended by the state Head of Service, Mrs. Sellimot Otun.
Edun, in the statement after the meeting, called on all judiciary workers in the state to prepare themselves and resume fully.
The judiciary workers embarked on the strike over cut in their salaries, which was not pleasing to the workers.
Edun said: “There were series of meetings before the issue was finally resolved today (yesterday). There was an agitation over the cut of our salary.
“We have reached an agreement with the government to resume work after striking for more than two months. The state government has accepted our demands, and we also agreed to what the government asked of us.
“I want to say that the industrial action that commenced on August 11, 2021, is now suspended. I want to call on all judiciary workers in the state to prepare themselves and resume fully.”
While appreciating the government’s efforts at resolving the matter amicably, the JUSUNleader stated that its members have resolved to work with the present administration to take the state to greater heights.
