UI: SSANU, NASU Maintain Stance
Normal academic calendar at the University of Ibadan may continue to suffer a set-back if the Management of the institution failed to accede to the demands of Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, SSANU, and Non-Academic Staff Union, NASU, members of the institution.
To this end, the workers have called on relevant stakeholders in Nigeria to prevail on the Management of the school to honour the agreement earlier reached with them.
The two union members are demanding full payment of January salary of Staff School, payment of six months promotion arrears as well as the payment of pension deduction by the Management of the University of Ibadan.
In an interview, SSANU Chairman, UI chapter, Mr Wale Akinremi explained that the Management of the University of Ibadan and the Federal Government had been deducting pensions from their salaries since 2004 till date, saying the institution leaders had failed to refund the pension deducted from their salaries.
Also speaking the president of NASU, UI, Mr Malachi Etim, and SSANU Secretary, Mr Abiodun Omisore said the strike would continue until Federal Government and the Chancellor of the institution waded into the matter.
The union leaders lamented the use of security personnel to threaten them, saying the strike, as well as the protest embarked upon, would continue next week until the leadership of the university meet their demands.
