Written by on February 26, 2022

The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) on Friday threatened to embark on strike.

The threat is contained in a statement issued in Abuja and signed jointly by General Secretary NASU, Mr Prince Adeyemi, and National President of SSANU, Mr Mohammed Ibrahim.

They stated on behalf of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the two unions that the strike became necessary following Federal Government’s failure to implement agreements reached with the unions.

They stated also that the decision to embark on strike was reached at the committee’s meeting held on February 24.

According to the statement, till date, except for the constitution of Visitation Panels which White Papers are yet to see the light of the day, none of the issues as agreed in the October 2020 and February 2021 Memorandum of Action have been implemented.

The statement noted other issues agitating the unions to include delay in renegotiation of FGN/NASU and SSANU agreement and non-payment of arrears of the National Minimum Wage.
