As university-based unions remain on strike, the Federal Government has resumed negotiation with the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Associations of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) in an attempt to put an end to the strike.
AllNews Nigeria reports that the unions embarked on two weeks warning strike on March 28 due to the Federal Government’s inability to meet their demands.
The strike was extended for one month on April 22, with the unions arguing that the Federal Government had remained silent on the demands.
In this light, the FG has resumed negotiations with the Joint Action Committee of the unions.
A conciliation meeting between the two parties began on Thursday at around 2 pm at the Ministry of Labour and was ongoing as of the time this report was filed.
