The Ebonyi State Government has ordered members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria in the state, to immediately suspended their industrial action or be sacked.
JUSUN members in the state embarked on the indefinite strike on August 13 over non-implementation of the Consolidated Judiciary Salary Structure by the state government.
The union defiled Governor David Umahi’s threat in a recent state function, to sack the members if they embarked on the strike.
The government’s order for the strike’s suspension is contained in a statement issued on Friday in Abakaliki by Ebonyi Head of Service, Dr Chamberlain Nwele, mandating the JUSUN leadership to immediately comply with the order.
The statement reads in part:
“JUSUN members in the state are therefore directed to return to work on Friday, August 14 or risk being dismissed from service.
“Attendance of judiciary staff will be taken by state government officials, to aid payment of August 2020 salary,”
Nwele, in the statement, noted that Governor David Umahi considers the strike as an act of sabotage which the government will not tolerate.
