University Unions End Nationwide Strike, Order Members To Resume Duties | MarvelTvUpdates

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have ended their seven-day nationwide warning strike.

In a circular to branch chairmen at public universities nationwide, SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, directed SSANU and NASU members to resume work from Monday, March 25, 2024.

The unions said upon evaluation of the seven-day warning strike, the tempo of the warning strike has been massive, comprehensive and total in most of our universities and inter-universities centres.

They saluted the dedication, resoluteness and loyalty of members to the cause of the union’s struggle for the payment of four months’ withheld salaries.

“Consequently, you are hereby informed that the seven-day warning strike shall end at midnight of Sunday, 24th March 2024 and normal work will resume on Monday, 25th March 2024,” the circular read.

The unions assured members that the struggle for the payment of the withheld salaries are ongoing.

The unions promised to continue “meaningful engagement with the relevant Government Agencies in both Executive and Legislative Arms” and notify members of the next line of action(s) to be taken.

Both SSANU and NASU are protesting withheld salaries by the Federal Government.

The two unions berated the Federal Government for paying withheld salaries to the Academic Staff Union of Universities  (ASUU) while neglecting the non-academic unions.
