The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) has directed its members to proceed on a 14-day warning strike from today (Monday).
SSANU in a statement signed by its President, Samson Ugwoke, said the decision to embark on the strike follows the directives by the National Universities Commission to Vice-Chancellors for the immediate reopening of universities.
The warning strike according to the senior non-academics is over alleged “inconsistencies in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPS); non-payment of the arrears of the national minimum wage; and the failure of the government to pay their earned allowances.”
The union adds that its decision to embark on the strike follows “the non-payment of retirement benefits to its members, lack of seriousness, and delay by the government in the re-negotiation of the 2009 SSANU/Federal Government Agreement, and neglect and poor funding of state universities.”
The statement adds that the strike is a “prelude to a full-blown, total and indefinite industrial action if the grievances were not addressed by the government.”For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
