SSSANU, NASU Commence Strike


Mar 17, 2024

The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) has directed its members to proceed on strike from Monday, 18th March.

The labour union said the strike is due to the failure of the federal government to address issues raised and the expiration of the ultimatum earlier issued to the government.

The statement, signed by NASU general secretary, Peter Adeyemi and SSANU president, Mohammed Ibrahim, said the strike is coming into effect due to the government’s decision to withhold four months’ salaries of members.

It added that the government failed to do the needful regarding the withheld salaries, hence their decision to proceed on a 7-day warning strike effective Monday, March 18 in the first instance.

The statement said the strike would be total and no concession would be given.
