SSANU opposes proscription of staff unions
The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has kicked against the proscription of Staff Unions by the Governing Council of Ekiti State University (EKSU).
Vice Chairman of the Union in the Western Zone, Mr Abdussubour Salam made this known while speaking with newsmen at the University of Ibadan.
Mr Salam who expressed displeasure on the matter alleged that the basis for the proscription as disclosed by the Governing Council was spurious and a blatant misrepresentation of realities on ground.
He described the action of the council as an attempt to “give a dog bad name, blindfold the public and distract the union” from the substantive issues that led to protests by the unions.
While condemning the proscription, the former Vice Chairman of the Union in the Zone, Mr Alfred Jimoh and the Chairman of the Union at the Ekiti State University, Mr Aguda Azzez accused the council of playing to the gallery on the matter.
“The real issues which led to the crisis, the irregular dismissal of over one thousand staff, the non-payment of five months’ salaries in 2018, non-remittance of pension deductions, non remittance of tax deductions, non payment of earned allowances since 2016 till date, be addressed instead of chasing shadows and distracting the unions with a purported proscription that holds no water.”
They urged the Ekiti State Government to embrace dialogue, negotiations and constructive engagement in resolving the above enumerated issues instead of going ahead with its present approach.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
