SSANU and NASU End Warning Strike

Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have ended their seven-day warning strike.

SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, instructed SSANU and NASU members through a circular to resume work from Monday, March 25, 2024. The strike, which began on March 18, 2024, was prompted by withheld salaries, leading workers in various university departments to withdraw their services.

Both SSANU and NASU are protesting withheld salaries by the Federal Government. The two unions berated the Federal Government for paying withheld salaries to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) while neglecting the non-academic unions.

All the unions had embarked on an eight-month strike in 2022 to press home some of their demands including a better welfare package. The administration of then President Muhammadu Buhari subsequently invoked a ‘No Work, No Pay policy’ against the unions but President Bola Tinubu last October approved the release of four of the eight months withheld salaries.
