Fedearal Government To Recall Sacked 2000 Varsity Staff School Workers

There are indications that the Federal Government may consider the recall of sacked Universities staff school workers as a solution to end the two- week old strike embarked upon by the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU). 

It would be recalled that SSANU had embarked on a strike action since December 24, 2015 alleging that about 2,000 universities staff school workers were affected by a circular from the government to vice chancellors of universities to remove the names of the workers from the government pay roll. SSANU had argued that the union in 2009 entered into agreement with the Federal Government on the subject matter, adding that removing the names of the workers of the universities staff schools was going contrary to the agreement.

It was however, gathered that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, held meeting with the SSANU leadership at an undisclosed hotel in Abuja on Sunday on how to resolve the problem. A source privy to the meeting, disclosed that the Education minister had indicated the willingness to ensure that the strike was called off, but SSANU insisted that the termination letters to its members should be withdrawn before it could suspend the strike. 

It was gathered that the minister had promised to consult with the necessary stakeholders involved in taking decisions on the matter, including the Budget Office and the National Universities Commission (NUC) before giving any concrete answer.
