The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, Imo State chapter, on Wednesday announced the suspension of the industrial action it embarked upon to press for the implementation of the judgment of a Federal High Court upholding financial autonomy for the judiciary.
Court activities were paralyzed in Imo for about three months until the nationwide strike, directed by the National Executive Committee of JUSUN, was called off on Wednesday.
A statement on Wednesday by the Senior Special Assistant to the Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, Sam Onwuemeodo, said the workers suspended the strike following “a serious meeting between the state government and the union leaders”, in the state.
The statement quoted the Chairman of Imo State chapter of JUSUN, Mr. Aloka Kenneth, to have directed its members in the state to return to work, stating that the action followed an agreement between the union’s leadership and the state government.
According to Onwuemeodo, Kenneth commended the state governor for being a part of the deliberations that resulted in the signing of an agreement between the union and the government.
