According to Daily Independent News, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) has allegedly given the Federal Government three weeks ultimatum within which to resume re-negotiation with its National Executive to avert nationwide Industrial Action by its members.
According to a statement released to men of the press by the association, the resolution was made at the 58th National Executive Councils/ General Executive meeting held at the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi.
Adebanjo Ogunsipe, President, SSANIP, said that the association frowned at the apathy and continued delay of the re-negotiation of the 2010 agreement the FG had with all unions in the polytechnic sector.
According to Daily Independent News, SSANIP expressed great displeasure over what is described as gross inadequate funding of state polytechnics and similar institutions by some state governors.
Also, on the discrimination against HND holders, SSANIP’s apex body condemned in strong terms, the continued discrimination and marginalization of HND holders in the labor market, especially, by public and private organizations despite the abolition of the HND/B.SC dichotomy by the FG.
