THE nation’s university education is heading for another major industrial unrest as workers in the sector have written to President Goodluck Jonathan intimating him of their resolve to commence a nationwide strike from December 10, over unpaid allowances and job security.
Acting under the umbrella of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the workers are concerned over non-implementation of 2009 agreement government entered with them, especially as it concerned earned allowances to non-teaching staff members of SSANU and the planned outsourcing of non-teaching staff in universities.
A similar letter by SSANU to the Minister of Education and copied Minister of Labour and Productivity and National University Commission (NUC), gave the minister a week ultimatum to address the grievances of members or face industrial unrest.
The letter addressed to President Jonathan and signed by SSANU President, Comrade Samson Ugwoke, read: “On behalf of the entire membership of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), I write to greet Mr.President with utmost respect and congratulate you for your painstaking efforts at tackling the numerous problems of our country, including the difficult task of ensuing peace and normalcy in our universities.
