Nigerian universities’ workers call off strike
The non-teaching staff of Nigerian universities have suspended their strike.
The staff, members of three unions, NASU, SSANU, and NAAT, announced the suspension of the strike on Wednesday, after three months and 10 days of industrial dispute.
Samson Ugwoke, the national chairman of the Joint Action Committee of the three unions announced the suspension on Wednesday at a press briefing.
He said members of the three unions have been directed to resume on March 15, 2018.
“We shall not hesitate to resume the strike if government reneges on the agreements reached or delays in any aspect,” he said.
The workers commenced the strike on December 4, 2017.
CAMPUS REPORTER had earlier reported the industrial dispute was close to an end, following a meeting between the JAC and the minister of labor, Chris Ngige last week.
The workers embarked on the strike over the sharing principle of the academic earned allowances between them and their academic staff counterparts.
