JUSUN suspends planned strike in Kano

20 July 2012, 07:17

 The Kano State chapter of Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has suspended its planned strike scheduled to commence on Wednesday.

Sulaiman Aliyu, the Public Relations Officer of the union said on Wednesday that the union and the State Government reached an agreement on Tuesday.

Aliyu said the government had agreed to increase the basic salary of members of the union with effect from July 2012, which according to him, was the main demand of the union.

He said for more than one year, members of the union were being paid only N5, 027 as basic salaries as against the N7, 350 enjoyed by other civil servants in the state.

According to him, the disparity is so wide that a retired judicial staff whose gratuity under the state salary scheme will have been N4.8 million ends up earning only N2 million.

Aliyu, who expressed optimism that the State Government would redeem its pledge however, said they will not hesitate to commence the strike if government refuses to honour the pledge.”
