SSANU, NASU Commence Warning Strike March 18

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have announced a seven-day warning strike, commencing on March 18, 2024.

This decision stemmed from the unions’ demand for the payment of four months’ withheld salaries following the 2022 nationwide strike.

In a statement today, March 17, SSANU President Mohammed Ibrahim emphasized that this strike is a last resort after exhausting other avenues to address the salary issue.

“After a joint meeting in Akure over the weekend, the unions’ joint action committee resolved to embark on the warning strike due to the Federal Government’s alleged abandonment and failure to respond to their previous communications.”

The unions warned of further action if the government fails to act positively. This development follows accusations from the unions of being treated with disdain by the Federal Government despite President Bola Tinubu’s directive to pay withheld salaries.

SSANU and NASU stressed their role in university administration and urged the government to fulfill its obligations to ensure industrial harmony.
