Varsity Staff Unions Begin Nationwide Strike Action

Leadership of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU), have insisted it will go ahead with its nationwide strike on February 5, in order to compel the Federal Government to address their demands.

In a statement jointly signed by SSANU president, Mohammed Ibrahim, and NASU’s General Secretary, Peters Adeyemi, on Thursday in Abuja, the Unions said that after the meeting with the FG this week, both unions have called for general meetings with all branches and decided it would go on strike on the 5th.

The Unions’ statement read, “This is to give reports on the outcome of the conciliation meeting and pass resolutions on the way forward. The resolutions of the branches must reach the respective National Secretariats on or before Tuesday, Feb. 9.

“In the meantime, the nationwide strike takes effect from 12 midnight, 5 Feb., 2021, pending any contrary resolution by the branches.”

Despite FG announcement on setting up a Joint Committee to investigate concerns related to the issues raised by the SSANU and NASU over payment anomalies, the unions threatened to continue with their strike action.
