Update: NASU, SSANU Strike Kicks Off Today


The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) kicks off  their 14-day warning strike today.

In a letter dated 28th September 2020, the unions said the decision to embark on a 14-day warning strike was a fulfillment of their threat to begin the action as soon as the Federal Government directs universities to resume academic activities.

The two unions said the warning strike would snowball into full blown industrial action if their grievances are not addressed by the Federal Government.

The letter reads in part: “Kindly recall earlier information on the above subject matter wherein it was conveyed that the Joint Action Committee of NASU and SSANU would embark on on a 14-day Industrial
action immediately universities resume following the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Following the recent directives from the National Universities Commission (NUC) to Vice-Chancellors for the immediate resumption/safe reopening of universities, you are hereby directed to commence a
14-day warning strike effective from 5th to 19th October 2020.”
