The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) is organizing its members across the country to participate in the strike action that has been called by the Nigeria Labour Congress in opposition to the increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit.
The above statement was made in response to a letter the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) sent to all 43 of its affiliate unions, including JUSUN, urging them to mobilize for a planned strike set to start on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, in opposition to an increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit.
The cirular addressed to all chapters of JUSUN, by their leaders urged all branches to ensure total compliance with the NLC’s directives.
“This is to inform all Branches and chapters of our great union across Nigeria to begin mobilisation for a nationwide action and withdrawal of service which would commence on Wednesday 7th June 2023.
“This followed a decision of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) at her meeting on 2nd June, 2023 over the increase in the pump price of Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS) by the Federal Government through NNPCL
All zonal vice presidents are to coordinate their zones by ensuring that Branch and chapters chairmen mobilise their members for a total compliance.
