SSANU, NASU threaten strike over unresolved issues with FG

SSANU, NASU threaten strike over unresolved issues with FG

The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has reportedly announced to start strike over unsettled issues with the Federal Government as soon as the universities reopen.

The Chairman of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the two unions, Mr Samson Ugwoke, said this while addressing newsmen on the unions’ resolutions in Abuja Thursday.

SSANU National President Mr Samson Ugwoke and NASU Secretary General Mr Peters Adeyemi signed the resolutions.

The concerns of the unions included the lingering debacle of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), non-payment of earned allowance arrears and the minimum wage.

Others are the Babalakin Committee’s alleged lack of seriousness in renegotiating the 2009 FG / NASU, SSANU agreements, neglect and poor funding of state universities, lack of visitation panels among others.

University workers are still to be paid, according to Ugwoke, long after many other sectors had been paid the arrears of the national minimum wage and consequential adjustment.

“We find the creation absolutely unsafe and very dangerous.

“Since it has been implemented in other sectors for more than a year, members of the public would agree that we were patient enough in the university system,” he said.

He pointed out that given the series of letters from the unions to the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) office since February, their members continue to face many obstacles, including salary payments.

Ugwuoke also said that its members, whose monthly salaries have been paid in the past seven months in the second week of the following month, have suffered as a result of IPPIS ‘s difficulties.

He argued that they had avoided the planned action as responsible unions, adding that the unhealthy situation had made this unavoidable.

Ugwoke said: “We have again been crying out to the general public to encourage stakeholders and well-meaning Nigerians to prevail over the government to fix the IPPIS anomaly.

“Charge us, amongst others, the arrears of all earned bonuses and minimum wages.”

He warned that the unions would have no choice but to embark on an effective strike shortly after reopening of universities.

“When schools are required to reopen by the time the necessary is not accomplished, it means that hope is lost and the labor dispute which can be prevented is unavoidable.

“This is what we are trying to avert, hence this uproar and call for constructive and timely response from the government,” he said.
