The Joint Action Committee of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) has suspended its three-week-old strike with effect from midnight of on Friday, February 26.
President of SSANU, Mohammed Ibrahim Haruna, and the NASU General Secretary, Peters Adeyemi, announced this Thursday night after a meeting with the delegation of Federal Government led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
It would be recalled that the leadership of the unions had on February 5 directed all its branches to commence an indefinite strike with a view to pressing home their demands bordering on alleged injustice on sharing formula of N40bn Earned Allowance and non-payment minimum wage arrears.
Other contentious issues raised include inconsistencies in the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), delay in renegotiation of FG/NASU and SSANU 2009 agreement, non-payment of retirement benefits of outgone members among others. (DailyTrust)
