Non-academic activities in universities will be paralysed for five days from today as the non-teaching staff unions comprising the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, and Non Academic Staff Union, NASU, have threatened to commence on a warning strike over non implementation of the 2009 agreements the unions entered into with the Federal Government.
Below are the grouse upon which they decided to declare the strike:


“The university system is challenged by poor governance and administrative lapses which need to be addressed holistically. Poor funding of our universities, shortfall in payment of staff salaries, increasing corruption in the university system.”


“The problem of inadequate physical infrastructure and abandoned projects which they said reduces the capacity and output of her members.


“The problem of lack of adequate teaching and learning facilities which have reduced the productivity of our members and the non-payment of Earned Allowances being product of the 2009 Agreement.”


The issue of the Nigerian University Pension Management Commission, NUPEMCO, to resolve the problem of university staff pensions, the non implementation of the National Industrial Court, NIC, judgement on university staff schools and the non-implementation of the negotiated career structure for technologists, CONTISS 14 and 15.

This are the major reason, don’t forget to share to enlighten a friend.
