The Federal Judiciary workers in Enugu resumed work on Monday after the three-week nationwide strike called by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN.

The Federal High Court, Industrial and the Appeal Courts were all open for the business of the day.

Some of the workers were seen discussing the situation while some litigants and clients came to ascertain if the industrial action was truly over.

At the Federal High Court, the Registrar, who did not disclose his identity, said that most of the workers were already in their offices while the remaining ones who had yet to report to work might may resume on Tuesday due to the lateness of the resumption notice.

“I heard the announcement very late last night and those who are yet to be here may not have heard it at all,’’ he said.

At the Appeal Court, the Head of Department, Litigation, who pleaded anonymity, said that they had resumed fully following the directive received from the executives of the union.

Also at the National Industrial Court, a staff of court said that most workers were in their various offices while some were still reporting.

“As you can see, we the staff are already in the office, so this alone shows that work has resumed fully,” he said.

JUSUN embarked on a nationwide strike on January 2, to press home their demand for judicial autonomy among other issues bordering on their welfare.
