Non-teaching staff of federal universities have suspended their three month old strike.
The strike which began last December 4 is to compel the Presidency to implement its 2009 agreement with the institutions’ non-academic staff.
Chairman of the Joint Action Committee of the non-academic staff unions, Sam Ugokwe, announcing the decision at a news conference in Abuja, says the Presidency had shown seriousness in meeting some of the demands within the specific time frame.
Ugokwe listed such demands that must be met by the Presidency within the next five weeks, as including the earned allowance, visitation to the universities, as well as, the issue on the universities staff schools.
Labour and employment minister, Senator Chris Ngige, last Monday said the Presidency will shop for N8 billion to clear the earned allowance.Please subscribe to our newsletter
