The Joint Action Committee (JAC) has directed university workers under the aegis of Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), to start a three-day national protest from Tuesday.
The protest will start by 8.am and end at 4.pm every day. It further stated that the protest would mark the beginning of series of industrial actions to be embarked upon by JAC.
The directive to embark on the protest was arrived at on Friday night at a meeting held by the leadership of the two unions in Abuja.
The meeting was aimed at reviewing the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed with the Federal Government on October 20, 2020.
In a communique signed by Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim, the National President of SSANU, and Comrade Peters Adeyemi, the General Secretary of NASU, the JAC listed issues that necessitated the directive to include inconsistencies in IPPIS payments; non-payment of Earned Allowance; non-payment of arrears of new minimum wage and delay in the renegotiation of the FGN/ NASU/SSANU 2009 Agreements.
