The Federal High Court staff across Nigeria have disclosed plans to commence a two-week strike on September 28 over the recent increase in the electricity tariff and fuel pump price.

NAN had, on Friday, observed copies of the notice posted in and around the Federal High Court Headquarters building in Abuja by the court staff, under the aegis of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

JUSUN stated that all its members would abandon their duties in line with the industrial action planned by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to begin a strike on Monday.

The notice, which was not signed, reads: “Please be informed that the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Federal High Court chapter shall, in collaboration with the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), commences a two-week indefinite strike action from Monday the 28th day of September 2020.
