Following the Federal Government’s directive to Vice-Chancellors of universities to remove the names of staff of their secondary schools from their pay-roll, Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) has directed its members to embark on indefinite strike from December 24.
The National Executive Council of SSANU took the decision after its meeting in Abuja.
Addressing journalists on the outcome of its meeting, SSANU National President, Comrade Samson Ugwoke, said the action of the government to retrench over 2,000 staff was contrary to the Federal Government and SSANU agreement of 2009.
Ugwoke said that SSANU had written the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, urging him to order the immediate withdrawal of all letters from the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission, National Universities Commission and the Federal Ministry of Education directing Vice-Chancellors to remove personnel of the University Staff Primary Schools from the pay-roll.
