Minimum Wage: JUSUN orders nationwide shutdown of all courts, judicial institutes from Monday


The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has directed total shutdown of all courts and judicial institutes in the country from Monday, June 3, 2024.

In a circular issued by JUSUN’s Acting General Secretary, Comrade M. J. Akwashiki to the effect, the pressure group said its decision is in compliance with the indefinite nationwide strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), set to begin on Monday, June 3, 2024.

The nationwide strike is simply to pressure the government into agreeing on a new national minimum wage and passing it into law before the end of June.

JUSUN said it is also demanding the reversal of the electricity tariff increase from N225/kwh back to N66/kwh, arguing that the hike was implemented without proper consultation with stakeholders, as mandated by law.

The union also called for an end to the categorization of Nigerian electricity consumers into bands, labeling it an “apartheid” system.

Meanwhile, as the nation prepares for the imminent strike action, concerns are growing over the potential impacts it will have on the judiciary system and the country’s economy.

The government is under increasing pressure to address the issues raised by the labor unions promptly to avert further disruptions and hardships for the Nigerian populace.

The strike is set to commence at midnight on Sunday, June 2, 2024, with the full support and participation of JUSUN members nationwide.
