The strike action by the Nigeria Judiciary Staff Union in Ogun State, which began on August 11, has been called off.
JUSUN called off the strike on Thursday after a meeting between state officials led by the Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, and the union’s leadership led by the State Chairman, Tajudeen Edun.
The workers had accused the state government of underpaying its staff and requested that their salaries be paid in full.
The strike had hampered court proceedings, with a number of suspects languishing in police cells and prison custody as a result.
On Monday, Edun ordered all union members to return to work in full force.
He said, “They have met up with our demands and we have resolved the matter.”
He went on saying “there was series of meetings before the issue was finally resolved today.
“There was an agitation from 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 government asked from us”.
