Nigeria: Warning Strike By Non-Teaching Staff Paralyses UI

Ibadan — Administrative activities at the University of Ibadan have been paralyzed since Monday following the seven-day warning strike embarked upon by the combined team of Non Teaching workers of the premier University.

The industrial action, according to the aggrieved workers, under the aegis of Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT). was in view of the Federal Government's alleged intransigence on the agreement it reached with the various workers unions of the universities three years ago.

The protesting workers had continued to close the main gate of the University and blocked the entrance as their leadership hinted newsmen that the non implementation of the end allowance in the agreement was the main grouse of the workers coupled with its non inclusion in the next year budget.
