The Global News reports that the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union, NASU, have announced a 7-day warning strike to protest the withholding of their salaries during the nationwide strike in 2022.

Mohammed Ibrahim, SSANU President, disclosed this to pressmen on Monday.

The decision to embark on the strike was taken at a joint action committee of the two unions held in Akure, Ondo State capital on Thursday and Friday.

Ibrahim, who read the communiqué of the meeting to journalists in Abuja said the unions decided to embark on the warning strike as a last resort after several protest letters and other communications with the Federal Government did not yield any result.

The statement added: “If nothing is done by the Federal Government to positively address this situation and respond to our previous letters to them, the members of the two unions may be forced to meet soon to take all lawful and stringent decisions on the matter.”
