The non-academic staff union of educational institutions and associated institutions (NASU) announced that strike measures would be initiated at federal universities, universities of applied sciences and universities of teacher education as soon as schools could be resumed after the blocking of COVID-19.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by NASU Secretary General Peters Adeyemi.
The statement said that since February 2020, the union of non-teaching workers has been protesting the “underpayment” of their members’ salaries.
The Association has the Commercial Disputes Act (CAP 432), the Commercial Disputes Act (Essential Services), the GAP 433 of the Nigerian Federation Law of 1990 and the Decree No. 47 on Commercial Disputes (Amendment) of 1992, also Form TD / 3 called, submitted.
In its completed form TD / 3 entitled “Notification of trade disputes, cross-union and intra-union disputes from employers / workers’ organizations, etc.”, NASU raised issues, including the failure to pay salaries to some employees and the brief payment of salaries to some employees approved certificates under the FGN / NASU agreement for 2009.
Others are the non-deduction of check-off fees and the non-deduction of cooperative and other deductions from its members at federal universities and interuniversity centers, the federal universities and the federal college for education.
In a letter to the Minister of Labor and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, in which he declared a trade dispute, told Adeyemi that the crisis continues despite Ngige’s assurances.
He said: “Unfortunately, despite your assurances over a phone call in early April 2020, officials of the Integrated Payroll Information System (IPPIS) have refused to adequately correct any anomalies observed by NASU members at federal universities, and university-level centers, Federal Polytechnics, and Federal Colleges of Education up to this point, ie salaries paid to our members in February, March and April 2020. “
