- JUSUN and Parliamentary Staff Union of Nigeria had met with the Federal Government to smoothen the grey areas in the Memorandum of Action reached earlier
The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) on Saturday said although there were moves to finalise the Memorandum of Action reached on May 20 on its ongoing strike, discussions were still going on and should be completed.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the National Secretary of JUSUN, Isaiah Adetola, disclosed this when explaining the ongoing discussion between the Federal Government and JUSUN on Saturday.
He said, “State governors were not with us; so, they had to take the papers to them to endorse. By Monday or Tuesday, I think that putting signatures might go through.
“PASAN and JUSUN are asked to go and discuss with their members on the terms of the agreement because we cannot call off the strike like that.
“On the other hand, the governor’s will do theirs; so, the terms of settlement are long.
“There is also going to be state legislation which will define the resources of the state and what is expected of parties; the executive will take it as well as the legislature and judiciary.”
Adetola also urged members of the union and all who are affected by the ongoing strike to endure the hardship caused by the strike to be able to gain the benefits.

“The unions are not benefiting financially; even some of the workers concerned are not taking their salaries.
“We all have to bear it a little more, it is for the good of the country and all of us.
“By the grace of God we expect that everything will be resolved fast,” he added.
