MOUAU NASU/SSANU begins three-day protest


The members of the Joint Action Committee of the Non- Academic staff Union  and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities in Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike in Abia state, on Tuesday complied with directive of its National body to embark on a three-day protest against the non implementation of Memorandum of Understanding reached with Federal government last year.

The chairman joint Action committee of NASU and SSANU in the institution Mr. Ken Njoku, said the action was aimed at reminding the Federal government to implement the MOU reached and signed with the Union on Tuesday October 20, 2020 with the minister of Labour and Employment Chief Chris Ngige.

He stated that some of the issues raised in the MOU includes the inconsistencies in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, Non-payment of Earned allowances and arrears of minimum page.

Other demands were the delay in renegotiation of FG/ NASU/SSANU 2009 agreement and Non payment of retirement  benefits of outgone members.

He pointed out that JAC also frowns at the teaching staff headships of  non-teaching staff units, as well as the neglect and poor funding of state Universities and Non-constitution of visitation panels for Universities.

Njoku charged the members of Unions to participate in the three-day protest, adding that further directives will come from their National body thereafter.
