Rivers judiciary workers strike continues -JUSUN

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, South-South Zone, has declared that its members in Rivers State will continue with their strike until the crisis over who becomes the Chief Judge of the state is resolved.

JUSUN said since its national body had taken over the issue, it was better for the judiciary workers in the state to continue with the industrial action.

The judiciary workers in Rivers had on June 10, 2014 embarked on strike over the crisis rocking the third arm of government in the state.

But a communiqué signed by the National Vice Chairman of JUSUN, South-South Zone, Mr. Victor Ekpela, and Edo State Secretary of the body, Mr. Uyi Ogieriahi, condemned the move by some individuals to forestall the strike.

The South-South zone of JUSUN warned that it would resist any attempt by any person to scuttle the strike embarked by its members in Rivers State, adding that it was in support of the industrial action.

“The zone in session supports the strike embarked by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, Rivers State Branch, and urges the workers to continue as the National Secretariat has taken over the issue until the workers are satisfied on who is the head of the state judiciary.

“The zone in session condemns the attempt by some persons to forestall the strike action as the zone will resist any such attempt, and advise that measures are taken by stakeholders to see that all issues as responded and the strike resolved,” the communiqué, issued on Sunday, read.
