NAAT, NASU, SSANU Suspend Strike, Resume Monday

The non-teaching staff of Nigerian universities have suspended their two-week old strike over non-implementation of agreement by the Federal Government.

It would be recalled that the non-teaching staff of universities under the auspices of Joint Action Committee (JAC) had embarked on an indefinite strike on September 11 over non-implementation of its 12-point demand.

Samson Ugwoke, National Chairman of JAC, said this at a news conference at the end of its National Executive Council meeting on Thursday in Abuja.

The unions are made up of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU).

The demands of the unions are the payment of earned allowances to members, a review of the governance system in government-owned universities and improved funding in line with UNESCO recommendations.

The unions also demanded the provisions of infrastructure in universities and payment of salary shortfall being owed members, implementation of the National Industrial Court judgment on university staff schools and the registration of NUPEMCO.             Independent News Nigeria.
