JAC of the non-teaching staff of universities comprises of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of the Universities (NASU).

On February 5, the unions went on strike over the failure of the Federal Government to resolve issues in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.

They are also protesting the sharing formula of the N40 billion earned academic allowances and non-payment of arrears of the new minimum wage, among others.

At the meeting, it is gathered that NASU and SSANU reached a consensus and signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the federal government with identified timelines at which their demands are to be acted upon.
