The Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) have threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if the government fails to meet their demands.
The unions under the aegis of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) stated this through its spokesperson, Mr. Prince Adeyemi during a news conference in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that members of the unions had embarked on two weeks warning strike that expired at midnight on April 10.
The union’s demands include the inconsistencies in payment with the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System(IPPIS), non-payment of Earned Allowances, non-payment of arrears of the National Minimum Wage, and consequential adjustment.
Others are poor funding of state universities, delay in the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements, non-release of white papers of visitation panels, and non-payment of retirement benefits to outcome members, among others.
JAC had resolved that following the failure of the government to invite the leadership for a meeting, the strike should be extended by another two weeks before an indefinite and total strike is declared.
