The Joint Action Committee, JAC, of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, and Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Educational Institutions, NASU, have joined other university-based unions to cripple all activities in public universities.

The two unions have directed their branches across the country to embark on a two-week warning strike from today. Arising from their meeting in Abuja, JAC in a memo dated March 25, 2022, addressed to the leadership of the unions’ branches nationwide, directed them to ensure total compliance to the directive. The memo which was signed by SSANU President, Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim, and NASU General Secretary, Prince Peters Adeyemi, was entitled “commencement of two-week warning strike.”

The unions also said they were  ready to present to the federal government its preferred mode of payment, the University Peculiar Personnel & Payroll System, U3PS, which they said would address all the challenges unions members were facing in the payment of their salaries.

Recall also that the National Association of Academic Technologists had last week, commenced on its own two-weeks warning strike, while the Academic Staff Union of Universities

Part of the memo read : “In view of the nonchalant attitude of the government to our demands, this is to direct our members in all universities and inter-university centres throughout the country to commence a two-week strike by midnight of Sunday, March 27, 2022, in the first instance as earlier conveyed to the federal government in our letter.

“Please note that the two-week warning strike should be comprehensive and total as no concession should be given under any guise.

JAC had earlier in a letter addressed to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, dated March 16, 2022, accused the government of insincerity in its implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, and Memorandum of Action, MoA, reached with the government in October 2020 and February 2021.
