The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) of the University of Jos (UNIJOS), has threatened to embark on the warning strike come Monday if the Federal Government does not pay their N30 billion arrears.
Esther Ezeama, Chairperson of SSANU and Chairperson of the Joint Action Committee (JAC), made this known while having a peaceful protest at the university premises in Jos, Plateau State.
“If the Federal Government does not look into our matter we will be going for a compulsory five-day warning strike, after that we will go for indefinite strike if our demands are not met.
“We have been on this struggle since 2009 and government is not willing to meet our demands, it has been promising and failing, we are saying enough is enough. We want them to do something urgently to arrest the situation.
“We want the National Assembly, the office of the Accountant General, the National Universities Commission (NUC) to put their heads together to resolve our problem before the system is shut down.”
