Strike: NASU, SSANU Give FG 14-day Ultimatum by Maniagist1: 7:39pm On Aug 02, 2019
The Non-Academic Staff Unions in universities on Friday handed the Federal Government a 14-day ultimatum within which it should accede to their demands or face a nationwide strike.

The non-teaching staff under the aegis of Joint Action Committee comprising the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and Educational Institutions, NASU and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, have directed all their branches to resume nationwide protest in all the universities with effect from Tuesday, August 6, 2019.

The two unions in a circular to all the branches after the JAC meeting held in Abuja said that at the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum, they would be left with no other option than to withdraw their services and shut down the universities if the Federal Government failed to address their grievances.

The directive was contained in a circular to all their branches titled; “Notice of Industrial Action”, signed by the Chairman of JAC and President of SSANU, Samson Ugwoke and the General Secretary of NASU, Peters Adeyemi, obtained by journalists in Abuja on Friday.

The circular reads, “This is to inform you that the Joint Action Committee of NASU and SSANU met today, Thursday August 1, 2019, to consider the issues which led to the nationwide protest in our various branches, viz, payment of earned allowances, University Staff Schools matter, renegotiation of 2009 FGN/Unions Agreement,among others.

“After extensive deliberations, JAC further observed that no date has been rescheduled by the President of the Senate, His Excellency, Senator Ahmed Lawan for the meeting with the leadership of JAC national.

“The meeting earlier scheduled by the Federal Ministry of Education with the leadership of JAC national has been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 7, 2019 with no reason(s) stated.

“That a 14-day ultimatum of industrial action be given to the Federal Government of Nigeria to address the pending issues with effect from Monday, August 5, 2019. During the period of the ultimatum, all branches are hereby directed to carry out peaceful protest on Tuesday, August 6 2019 and Thursday, August 15 2019 respectively.

“At the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum, Sunday, August 18 2019, without any positive response from the Federal Government of Nigeria, members shall proceed on a 5-day warning strike in all branches from Monday 19 to Friday, 23 August 2019.
