Nasarawa tertiary institutions issue four weeks strike notice
The Joint Union of Nasarawa State Tertiary Institutions has served the state government four weeks ultimatum to address its welfare or risk indefinite strike action.
The statement, which was signed by the union Chairman, Samuel Bashayi and made available in Lafia, stated that the union could no longer tolerate the un-seriousness of state government concerning the welfare of its members.
It added that the union had given the government another window period to see to the implementation of the reports of the fact-finding committees set up to investigate the activities of the state own tertiary institutions.
It listed some of its demands to include the implementation of 2015 and 2016 promotion of its members in College of Education Akwanga, College of Agriculture Lafia and Nasarawa State Polytechnic Lafia.
The statement however said that the government should also pay arrears of its annual increments and pay all outstanding pension and gratuity of its members who retired from active service, adding, “let the government use the window period to implement the recommendation of the fact-finding committees.”
The statement further threatens: “If the government in its characteristic manner of turning down agreements do that this time around, then we shall be left with no option than to declare total and indefinite strike in the state.”
