University workers end warning strike, orders members to resume work and review situation

University workers declare 7-Day Warning Strike


March 12, 2024

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU), have declared a 7-day warning strike to demand the payment of FOUR MONTHS of withheld salaries for their members following the 2022 nationwide strike.

The decision was reached during a meeting of the joint action committee of the two unions, held in Akure over the weekend.

SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, who conveyed the meeting resolution to newsmen yesterday, said the warning strike became necessary after several failed attempts to engage with the Federal Government over the issue.

SSANU and NASU had accused the federal government of failure to pay the withheld salaries despite the order of President Bola Tinubu to pay members of the ASUU, who also participated in the 2022 strike.
