Strike continues as  SSANU's meeting with FG ends in deadloc

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities(SSANU), and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and Allied Institutions has declared continuation of strike actions as meeting with Federal Government (FG) ended in a deadlock.

The National President of SSANU, Muhammed Ibrahim, on Wednesday said the unions will  continue with the strike as both parties failed to reach an agreement.

“Strike continues,” Ibrahim said in reaction to the meeting.

SSANU and NASU commenced  a seven-day nationwide strike on Monday to protest the refusal of the Federal Government to release their four-month salaries withheld in 2021 because they embarked on a strike.

The government of then President Muhammadu Buhari withheld the salaries, insisting on the principle of ‘No work; no pay

However, the current administration of President Bola Tinubu ordered the release of the withheld salaries of members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, who were also affected by the past administration’s ‘no work; no pay’stance.

SSANU and NASU were, however, displeased to be left out.

They wrote to the Tinubu government, asking that their withheld salaries be released.

The government, however, ignored the repeated demands, following which the two unions embarked on a strike.
