NON ACADEMIC STAFF OF NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES CALL OF 3 MONTHS OLD STRIKE
The Daily Post Nigeria today reported that the three months old strike embarked upon by non academic staff of Nigeria has been calls off.
The online newspaper quoted the National Chairman of the Joint Action Committee of the unions, Mr. Samson Ugwoke as asking workers to resume tomorrow 15th March 2018. It said the directive was given at a press briefing today.
Daily Post quotes the chairman as saying the workers would resume the strike should the government renege in agreement reached but again this sounds amusing as the government have not been responsive to the unions and seems to snub them as it seems their services to the universities doesn’t seem to affect the flow of academic activities.
The workers have been receiving their salaries despite the strike and were comfortable but it seems boredom has set in.
No matter the different sides of opinion, their services are important because should academic staff be given the responsibility of the. Striking non academic staff, it would be too much of load and they would be asking for a raise and probably be on strike too. Everybody is important.
The Joint Action Committee comprising NASU, NAAT and SSANU embarked on the strike on 150th December 2018.
