Group gives Anambra JUSUN 7 days to end strike

The Concerned Judiciary Workers, a splinter group of the striking Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), in Anambra State, has given the union seven days to call off its three-month-old strike.

The Protem Chairman of the group, Mr. Chirah Ozioma, made the call in Awka, on Monday, after meeting with some judiciary workers.

Ozioma accused the state executive of JUSUN, led by Mr. Mark Ifezue, of misleading the workforce and frustrating the efforts of the state government to end the strike.

"We decided to call this meeting to inform the workers of the true position of things. The truth is that workers are now hungry.

"Governor Willie Obiano has been labour-friendly, kind and magnanimous in handling the matter and had paid the November salary even without negotiating with the workers.

"The government has promised to look into the demands of the workers in the third quarter of 2016.

"We wonder why Ifezue refused to sign the agreement reached between the government and the union during the meeting of December 8 to end the strike without reasons.

"Having evaluated the position of the government, we feel that the JUSUN executive is frustrating the series of efforts to call off the strike," it said.
