The Senior Staff Association of Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) had declared an indefinite strike which begins from February 5.
The spokesperson of the joint action committee of SSANU and NASU, Peters Adeyemi, made the announcement yesterday January 22 in Abuja.
Adeyemi explained that the Federal Government has relaxed on their October 2020 agreement where all parties agreed to address the issues leading to the strike.
The joint action committee is demanding that the government removes her members from the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information (IPPIS), and to equally review the sharing formula for the universities earned allowances between the teaching and non-teaching staff of the universities.
Read the statement below;
“The joint action committee of SSANU and NASU hereby resolves as follows: That members of NASU/SSANU shall embark on an indefinite, comprehensive and total strike with effect from February 5, 2021.
“Two weeks notice effective from today, Friday, January 22, 2021 is hereby given to the government and relevant stakeholders of this development.
“The October 2020 memorandum of understanding (MOU) resolved that the compliance of SSANU/NASU with respect to IPPIS would be corrected within two weeks.
“But three months after, there has been no correction of these anomalies leading to a high level of restiveness among our members who have been short-changed on account of the problem caused by IPPIS.”
