The union in a communiqué on Thursday, said the strike was, among others, to press home its demand for various state governments in the country to comply with court judgments which granted financial autonomy at both the state and federal levels.

In the communiqué which was issued in Abuja at the end of the emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee of union, the union also expressed support for the ongoing strike embarked upon by its members in the Rivers State as a result of the current judiciary crisis in the state.

The union directed its members in the federal judiciary to be on the alert as they could also be asked to join the strike anytime in solidarity with their state counterparts.
