7-day warning strike begins – SSANU, NASU

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 of their members, following the 2022 nationwide strike.

The decision was part of the resolution of the joint action committee of the two unions, after a meeting which held in Akure at the weekend.

President of SSANU, Mohammed Ibrahim, made this known while reading the communiqué of the meeting to journalists in Abuja on Monday.

Ibrahim noted that the decision to embark on the warning strike was taken as a last resort since several protest letters and other communications with the Federal Government did not result in the payment of the withheld salaries.

The development followed the recent nationwide protests by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, over current economic hardship, which has led to high cost of living across the country.
