The union had earlier given a 21-day ultimatum to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC)

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has embarked on warning strike to support the Magistrates Association of Nigeria (MAN)  in Nasarawa State, Musa Jimoh, the Chairman of the JUSUN, said on Friday.

According to him, the union is protesting against the recent happenings in the judiciary that are improper.

Jimoh said that the union had earlier given 21- day ultimatum to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), which expired on August 20.

He said that the union decided to embark on a seven day warning strike because nothing had been done to address their grievances.

He said that the arrears of promoted staff had not been paid, adding that most of their financial benefits had since been withheld.

Jimoh said that the union also decried the recent appointment conducted by commission, noting that it disregarded the order of hierarchy.

“In Judiciary, we have Magistrate, Senior Magistrate and Chief Magistrate; it has to be in order of hierarchy,?? he said.

 He said that the union had no problem with the State Government as that the message might not have been properly channelled.
