The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Imo state chapter called off their two months old strike on Wednesday.
While addressing the press in Owerri, the State Chairman of the Union, Mr Kenneth Eloka revealed that the strike was called off after an agreement was reached between the executives of the union and the state government. According to him, the union also decided to call the strike off in the interest of the State judicial sector.
The reason for the strike was as a result of non-implementation of the judgment of a Federal High Court in Abuja, granting financial autonomy to the judiciary.
However, since federal workers of the union called off its strike January 25 at the recent NEC meeting of the union in Abuja, they directed State chapters to the State governments to resolve the issue.
The Imo State chapter would be the 5th State to call off its strike in the country.
