The Senior Staff Association Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU) have both commenced a nationwide strike action today.
The Leadership of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the non-teaching staff unions of universities says they will commence strike action on the 5th of February 2021 in a bid to get the Federal Government to comply with their demands.
Peters Adeyemi, NASU General Secretary, said this in a statement jointly signed by Mohammed Ibrahim, SSANU President, on Thursday, in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the JAC of the two unions NASU and SSANU had last week threatened to embark on strike on February 5, to press home its demands.
The demands included, rectifying inconsistencies in the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS), non-payment of arrears of minimum wage, delay in renegotiation with government, NASU and SSANU 2009 agreement, among others.
