The workers leader announced the suspension of the strike.

The striking Ogun State Judiciary workers at the weekend suspended their three-weeks-old strike which means courts in the state are to resume on Monday.

The workers embarked on the strike over the failure of the state government to implement a special salary scale for them.

The suspension of the strike was announced by the Chairman of the State Chapter of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, Samuel Adesanya, after the congress of the union held at the State High Court Complex, Abeokuta.

He explained that the union decided to suspend the strike following the intervention of the bodies of retired judges, the Nigeria Bar Association, and Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity.

Mr. Adesanya also cited the state government’s assurance that it would begin the implementation of the new salary scale from January 2013.

The union leader said the payment of arrears of the salary scale from March 2012 would be sorted out with the state government.

He, however, warned that the strike would resume if the state government fails to reflect the new scale in the salaries as agreed.
