Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and Associated Institutions (NASU) as well as the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) yesterday threatened to go on strike, if the Federal Government fails to meet their demands.The unions directed their members to embark on a three-day warning protest as a prelude to the strike.
The unions are protesting alleged unfair implementation of Federal Government’s ‘Earned Allowance’ for their members.
The Earned Allowances, according to the University of Ibadan (UI) Joint Action Committee (JAC) Chairman of SSANU and NASU, Abiodun Omisore, were meant to palliate the global economic downswing caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and other socio-economic factors on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), SSANU and NASU members.
Addressing reporters during the protest in Ibadan, Omisore said the unions would ensure that the government redressed the balance, adding that they would not retreat until the Federal Government retraced its steps on what they called the Draconian sharing formula of the yet-to-be-released tranche of 2021 Earned Allowances, payment of promotion arrears and arrears of the minimum.
