BREAKING: SSANU, NASU, NAAT Call-Off Nationwide Strike

The non-teaching staff of Nigerian universities have suspended their nationwide strike, which they embarked upon since December 4, 2017.

The non-teaching staff comprise of three main unions including: Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union of Associated Institutions (NASU) and the National Association Academic Technologists (NAAT).

The three non-teaching staff unions under the auspices of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) were on strike over the failure by government to implement the agreement signed by both parties in September 2017 as well as the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the unions and government in February 2017.

However, the leadership of the three unions announced the suspension of the three month and 10 days old strike on Wednesday.

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 aspects,” he said.
