All is set for an indefinite nationwide strike by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) with effect from tomorrow, July 11, 2014.

JUSUN in a communique issued at the end of an emergency meeting of its National Executive Committee in Abuja said the industrial action was necessitated by government’s failure to implement the Federal High Court judgment on the financial autonomy of the state judiciaries.

The communique jointly signed by JUSUN National President, Comrade Marwan Mustapha Adamu, and General Secretary, Comrade Isaiah Adetola, temporarily exempted federal judiciary workers from the strike but urged them to be at alert as they could be asked to join at anytime.

JUSUN also announced that it has keyed into the judicial crisis in Rivers State since “the security and protection of our members is no longer guaranteed in this leadership crisis that engulfed the Rivers State Judiciary in the last one year.”

According to the communique, “After the exhaustive deliberation on the refusal/failure of state Governments to respect/implement the Federal High Court Abuja, judgment/orders in respect of financial autonomy of state Judiciaries as well as failure of stakeholders to abide by the decision to set up a technical implementation committee of the FAAC meeting of 17th June 2014, it is resolved by NEC as follows:

“That all Judiciary staff at state level nationwide should proceed on an indefinite strike with effect from Friday 11th July 2014.

“That the National secretariat of the union shall notify Federal Judiciary workers to join the action as events unfolds.

“That the National Executive Committee of the union after a review of events in Rivers State Judiciary also resolved that JUSUN members in the state should continue and sustain their current strike until the major stakeholders, fine an amicable resolution of the leadership crisis in Rivers state judiciary. Meanwhile, the NEC in session has announced total takeover of action in River State.”
