The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, has apologized to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, over its labour approach at a conciliation meeting.
JUSUN’s General Secretary, Isaiah Adetola, tendered the unreserved apology in a letter dated April 26, and addressed to Ngige.
The letter was made available to journalists by the Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations in the ministry, Charles Akpan on Tuesday in Abuja.
Law TV reports that JUSUN had on April 20, staged a walkout at the meeting called by the minister, including the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN, to resolve the ongoing strike by the unions.
The leaders of both unions were angry that a meeting slated for 3: 00 p.m., did not start as at 4:.35 p.m.
The unionists then staged a walkout chanting solidarity songs.
Adetola urged the minister to continue with the meeting, geared towards an amicable resolution of the strike.
According to Adetola, JUSUN is tendering its unreserved apology to Ngige in whatever way it has hurt the minister.
It was also reported that the minister had already accepted the apology, and said a new date for continuation of the conciliation will be communicated shortly to all relevant stakeholders.
