SSANU, NASU Set For Strike Thursday, July 4

Non teaching staff Union of Nigerian public Universities may embark on an indefinite strike yet again.

This time around, the body will go on strike from Thursday, July 4, at the expiration of a two week strike notice, over withheld 4 months salaries, and the unpaid 13 months salaries to Abia State University workers.

The unions are the Senior Staff Union of Universities (SSANU), and the Non-teaching Staff Union of Educational and Allied Institutions (NASU)

SSANU President at a briefing in Abuja said beyond the withheld and unpaid salaries, most institutions still owe between three and six months of the N35, 000 wage award as it accused the Federal government of being slow and dodgy with regards to announcing a new national minimum wage

Other issues the unions are concerned about are the limited number of educated individuals in the reconstituted Boards of Federal tertiary institutions and the proliferation of State Universities, amidst poor funding of existing ones.

The unions are equally demanding quick fix to the Nation’s security challenges, following the killing of a Deputy Vice Chancellor, of the Uthman Dan Fodio University in Sokoto
