The union insists that the Lagos State government sends it a copy of the resolution.

The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, SSANU, Lagos State University, Ojo Chapter, wants the State Government to release the resolution of the meeting held between both parties in November 2013.

The chairman of the chapter, Saheed Oseni, said on Tuesday in Lagos that the union would not call off its ongoing strike until it received the resolution.

He said the members of the union had rejected a plea by the state government to resume work and await a copy of the resolution.

“Congress had concluded that the union must receive the resolution of the meeting it held with the representatives of the government before it suspends its strike.

“This is because we ought to have an official document to refer to in the future,” he said.

Mr. Oseni said that the state government was taking too much time to release the resolution.

“The deliberation with the representatives of the state government was promising and hopeful but we do not know why it is taking so long t release the resolution”, he said.

The chairman warned the university’s management to refrain from lobbying some members of the union to resume work.

The Acting Director, Centre for Information, Press and Public Relation Unit, Sola Fosudo, said the management had done everything possible to resolve the issues with the union.

The university’s chapter of SSANU has been on strike since September 30, 2013.
