Strike: Nasu Holds Emergency Meeting Today

Leadership of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) is meeting today to consult with its members on the state of its ongoing industrial action.

The union general-secretary, Peters Adeyemi, who disclosed this in Abuja yesterday, dismissed reports that the union had suspended its ongoing industrial action.
Adeyemi, however, hinted that the federal government had begun paying NASU members the arrears of the consequential adjustment of the national minimum but not all have received the payment so far.
He insisted that no other financial commitment made to the unions has been actionized except the consequential adjustment of the minimum wage, saying the payment is not enough for the striking workers to suspend the ongoing industrial action.
He said, “There are seven demands which we have gotten the commitment of the government to implement, there are six outstanding items yet to be acted upon. We cannot be because of the ongoing payment which is yet to be concluded to be talking about suspension of the strike.
“However, we are consulting with our members. A consultation meeting has been scheduled for today, Tuesday but it is very naive and mischievous for anyone to start saying we are planning to suspend the strike, I read in a section of the media that reported that we are planning to suspend the strike on Tuesday. Whoever reports that is a paid agent of the federal government. Let me use this opportunity to debunk the report.”
Adeyemi added that NASU could not take a unilateral decision to suspend a strike that was being prosecuted under the auspices of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of both NASU and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU).
He also denied knowledge of another meeting with the federal government on the crisis, saying the first meeting was more on concerns of ASUU.
“Indeed, the meeting mandated NITDA to conclude its integrity test for the alternative salary payment platforms proposed by ASUU and the non-teaching unions and report back. The Salary, Income and Wages Commission was told to look at the salary structure and report back to the meeting,” he said.
