The Senior Staff Association of Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities have given the Federal Government a three-week ultimatum to meet its long-standing issues or face strike action.
Recall that last year, the Federal Government signed a memorandum of understanding with the unions, promising to fulfill demands ranging from payment of earned allowances, the introduction of the UTAS platform for University workers as well as the payment of revitalization fund for Universities among others.
The National President of the Union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke speaking today November 15 at the University of Abuja said;
“We are giving the Federal Government a three-week ultimatum, if after three weeks they don’t meet our demands, we will be going on strike. We believe we have tried enough by giving them enough time.”
The Federal Government has not responded to this threat yet.
