Anambra State judiciary workers begin indefinite strike

Workers of Anambra State Customary Court of Appeal and those of customary courts yesterday began an indefinite strike over non-refund of their housing and Pencom fund deductions. The state chairman of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Mark Ifezue, addressed reporters yesterday in Awka, the state capital, on the action.

The labour leader said the union disagreed with the Customary Court of Appeal over the deductions, which he said lingered for about two years. He said the deductions from the workers’ salaries were not remitted to either the Federal Mortgage Bank, Trust Fund Pencom or into the account of the State Customary Court of Appeal.
