In response to the removal of fuel subsidy, the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has announced a declaration of industrial action.
According to a report by The Nation Newspaper, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) has increased the pump prices of petrol (PMS) by more than 200 percent. This has resulted in the price of fuel ranging from N488 to N557 per litre at NNPCL outlets.
In response to recent events, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has announced a nationwide strike that will take effect starting on Wednesday.
In a recent development, the General Secretary of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), M.J. Akwashiki, has issued a statement directing all branches and chapters of the union to commence nationwide mobilisation and withdrawal of service from Wednesday.
The statement reads: “This followed a decision of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) at her meeting on 2nd June 2023 over the increase in the pump price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) by the Federal Government through the NNPCL.
“All zonal vice presidents are to coordinate their zones by ensuring that branch and chapters chairmen mobilise their members for total compliance.”
