SSANU, NASU, NAAT Joins ASUU To Suspend Strike In Varsities
THREE non-teaching unions of universities under the auspices of the Joint Action Committee have suspended their two weeks strike.
The unions – Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) and the Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) – embarked on the strike to compel the government to implement agreements reached with them. According to the unions, they will resume the strike, if the government fails to implement the agreements.
We have consequently directed our members to resume work on Monday, September 25, 2017. In one month time, we shall be reviewing the level of compliance with the agreement and shall not hesitate to resume the strike action, if government reneges on the agreements reached or delays in any aspects.
Ugokwe said: “The strike by the university-based non-teaching unions was indeed avoidable and would have been averted if government had done the needful. Arising from the series of deliberations and engagements, we have once again gone to the drawing board.
