Minister of Education to meet striking non-teaching staff unions Tuesday

Published

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, is expected to host a meeting Tuesday with the leaders of non-teaching staff unions of Nigerian universities over their ongoing industrial action generated by disagreements around the sharing of earned allowances recently released to the universities by the Federal Government.

Adamu reportedly agreed to meet with the Joint Action Committee of the unions in Abuja, two weeks after the unions wrote him on their grievances over the sharing of the allowances with their academic colleagues.

The aggrieved unions which have been on strike since December 4, are Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, Non Academic Staff Union, NASU, and National Association Academic Technologists, NAAT.

The N23 billion Earned Allowances was released by the federal government to the universities in fulfilment of one of the resolutions reached to end the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

But the three non-teaching unions rejected the proposed sharing ratio of 11:89 percent between them and ASUU respectively.
