Govt asks committee to intervene in the SSANU, NASU planned strike


Following the news that the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of the Universities and Allied Institutions (NASU), are set to embark on strike from Friday, February 5, the Federal Government has set up a joint committee to address the complaints of the aggrieved unions.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this while addressing reporters at the end of a closed-door meeting held with the non-teaching staff of federal universities on Tuesday in Abuja.

The minister revealed that the government has inaugurated a committee consisting of the union, representatives of Federal Government from the Ministry of Education, Salary, Wages and Income Commission, Office of Accountant-General and the National Universities Commission to work out modalities in resolving the disputes.

The striking unions are demanding that the inconsistencies in the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS) be corrected, payment of arrears of Minimum Wage, renegotiation of the NASU and SSANU 2009 agreement, among others.
