SSANU, NASU, end one-week strike, to resume work Monday

Following the completion of the one-week warning strike, the Joint Action Committee of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) have directed its members to resume work on Monday, 25 March 2024.

Recall that last Monday SSANU and NASU started a one-week warning strike over the unfair treatment and disparity in the payment of their salaries by the Federal Government.

“We have declared a seven-day warning strike effective from the 18th of March, which is next Monday pending due process within the rank of the union and also pending discussion with our sister union, NASU,” a statement by Dr Abdussobuur Salaam, vice president of the association said.

However, a circular jointly signed by Prince Peters Adeyemi, NASU General Secretary and Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim, SSANU President, on Sunday directed all members of the unions to resume work on Monday.

The JAC leadership commended the members for their “courage, tenacity, commitment and resoluteness” for the effective observance of the seven-day strike.

“Consequently, you are hereby informed that the 7-day warning strike shall end at midnight of Sunday, 24th March 2024 and normal work will resume on Monday, 25th March 2024.

“While assuring you that the struggle for the payment of the 4 months’ withheld salaries is ongoing, further issues such as Renegotiation of the Year 2009 FGN/NASU and SSANU Agreements, Payment of N50 Billion Earned Allowances and others will continue to receive the same attention.

“Therefore, JAC leadership will continue meaningful engagement with the relevant government agencies in both executive and legislative arms and you will be duly notified of the next line of action(s) to be taken.

“Finally, we appreciate your unflinching support and unalloyed cooperation in this regard,” the joint statement read.
