JAC of SSANU and NASU had for about a month called the attention of the government to its exclusion from the payment of the withheld salaries, which it commenced payment for the Academic Staff Union of Universities in February.

Their salaries were withheld when the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari invoked a ‘No Work, No Pay policy’ against ASUU, SSANU, NAATS who embarked on a strike that lasted eight months, four months, and five-and-half months respectively in 2022.

NAATS also joined and began its three-day warning strike on Wednesday.

Speaking on Sunday during a Zoom meeting with journalists, the National President, JAC of SSANU and NASU, Mohammed Ibrahim, explained that all the unions would resume on Monday.

He, however, lamented that the government had yet to respond to the unions’ demands.

Ibrahim said the FG had not paid the non-teaching staff, adding that it would meet with the National Executive Council to decide the next line of action.

He said in a statement on Sunday, “Consequently, you are hereby informed that the seven-day warning strike shall end at midnight of Sunday, March 24, 2024, and normal work will resume on Monday, March 25, 2024.”
