The non-academic staff unions of Nigerian universities have resumed their suspended strike.
They said they rejected the sharing of the recent financial allocation to the universities.
They said the strike would resume on Monday, December 4.
The unions suspended their strike and asked their members to return to work on September 25 after signing a memorandum of understanding with the federal government.
They gave the federal government a month to start implementing the agreement; but said Thursday that the government still has to respond to their demands after two months.
We wrote a letter to the Federal Ministry of Education to explain the award criteria and we gave them a seven-day notice to do the necessary.
PREMIUM TIMES reported how the #23 billion naira sharing mode sent to universities by the federal government had provoked protests in many universities, with non-university workers blaming their university counterparts unfair distribution formula.
The unions, members of NAAT, NASU and SSANU, announced the resumption of the strike in a joint statement Thursday night. But the date has passed without a response from the federal government, they said..
The statement was signed by NAAT National Presidents, Sani Sulaimon; NASU, Chris Ani; and SSANU, Samson Ugwoke
