SSANU, NASU End Warning Strike, To Resume Work Tomorrow

 / 1 Comments /School News

Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have concluded their seven-day warning strike, directing their members to resume work.

Recall that warning strike was started over the non-payment of withheld salaries, affecting various university departments including registry, bursary, security, and student affairs. The unions criticized the government for prioritizing the payment of salaries to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) while neglecting non-academic staff.

During the strike, administrative activities in public universities across Nigeria came to a halt, with hostels locked, power cut off, and gates closed. SSANU and NASU accused the Federal Government of discrimination and unfair treatment for failing to address their salary concerns similar to their academic counterparts. Despite criticism from the Labour Minister, who condemned the strike as disregarding government efforts, the unions maintained their stance on the issue.

While ending the strike, SSANU and NASU acknowledged the massive participation and dedication of their members in the protest. They assured ongoing engagement with relevant government agencies to address their grievances and pledged to inform members of future actions. Despite the resumption of work, the unions remain committed to their struggle for the payment of withheld salaries and better welfare packages, emphasizing the need for continued dialogue with the government.
