Share This

Bearing any unforeseen circumstance, the Joint Action Committee in Nigerian Universities consisting of NASU, SSANU and NAAT is set to call-off their over 3 months old strike action. The suspension is set to take place during a scheduled meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) tomorrow Wednesday, 14th March, 2018. 

What seems to be an amicable solution between the 3 unions and the Nigerian Federal Government was hatched by Sen. Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, in a conciliation meeting with the Non-Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities in Abuja few days ago. That meeting was largely at the prompting of the Nigerian Senate. 

At the end of the meeting, a resolution was jointly signed by Ngige, NAAT President, Mr Sani Suleiman, NASU General Secretary, Mr Peters Adeyemi , SSANU President Mr Samson Ugwoke and Prof. Anthony Anwukah, Minister of State for Education. Sen Ngige also said that part of the 8 billion would also be used to pay members of the Academic Staff Universities, University of Nigeria, Nsukka and the University of llorinwho were not paid at the last disbursement.

He also said that the National Salaries Income and Wages Commission has been ordered to rework the Dec. 15 Call Circular on University Staff Schools. On the non-implementation of CONTISS 14 and 15 , the Minister said the Ministry of Education has made submissions to the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation and a report is expected in 5 weeks.

He also added that no worker would be victimised on account of the industrial action.
