Unions order striking UI workers to resume
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the three unions embarked on a protest over non- implementation of the allowance on Monday.
The directive ordering members back to work was given at a joint congress of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) held at the university’s main gate.
The Chairman of SSANU, Wale Akinremi, who spoke on behalf of the unions after the congress, said that the workers embarked on the protest to alert management of its responsibility.
He said that the management had already met with the union executives and signed an agreement to effect the payment of the allowance.
” We discussed the agreement with the Vice chancellor in the presence of the Bursar and the Registrar that the implementation of what we have asked for will commence immediately.
” We believe the management led by the vice chancellor will effect the payment and there will not be any problem in the university, ” he said.
