FG cancels meeting with Polytechnic and Judiciary Workers on strike

The Federal Government has abruptly cancelled the meeting that was supposed to have held today (Thursday) with the representatives of the striking polytechnic and judiciary workers.

No reason was given for the cancellation as at the time of the writing of this report.

 The polytechnic workers are demanding the implementation of the 2014 NEEDS Report, the release of revitalisation fund to the sector, reconstitution of governing councils in federal polytechnics and state-owned institutions, among other things.

JUSUN on the other hand is asking for financial autonomy for the judiciary and the implementation of Executive Order 10 signed by the President, Major-General Muhammdu Buhari (retd.), in May last year.

The polytechnics and the courts had been shut down following the strike action by the lecturers and the judicial workers.
