SSANU, NASU begin strike Monday
The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union NASU begin strike on Monday.
The strike is said to be a warning strike that will last 14 days.
The joint committee of the two bodies disclosed this in a statement signed by National President of SSANU, Samson Ugwoke and General Secretary of NASU, Peter Adeyemi.
According to the statement, the warning strike will last from October 5 to October 19.
In the statement, the joint committee identified the reasons for going on strike as: inconsistencies of the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) in the payment of salaries, non-payment of Earned Allowances to members, non-payment of national minimum wage and retirement benefits to our members, delay in the renegotiation of FGN/NASU and SSANU Agreements, non-payment of benefits to retired members, teaching staff usurping the headship of non-teaching units, and neglect and poor funding of state universities.
“Please note that this warning strike is a prelude to a full blown total and indefinite industrial action if the grievances highlighted above are not properly addressed,” the statement further read.
