Colleges of Education NASU suspends 4-month-old strike

The suspension will take effect from midnight, Sunday.

The Non-Academic Staff Union, NASU, of Educational and Associated Institutions in Colleges of Education on Friday suspended its four months old strike.

The General Secretary of the union, Peter Adeyemi, announced the suspension at the end of an emergency meeting of the union in Abuja on Friday.

Mr. Adeyemi said the suspension would take effect from midnight on Sunday and the strike would be suspended for three months.

“This is in order to enable the Minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, to look into the union’s demands with the aim of resolving them,” he said.

The Colleges of education and other trade group councils of NASU participated in the emergency meeting to discuss the strike which began in March.

The union’s grievances include the non-release of modalities for CONTISS 15 arrears.
Others include amendment of laws, infrastructure decay, security, and inadequate funding.

NASU is also demanding the release of salaries withheld en bloc; circular on the implementation of migration for lower cadre; and setting up of a technical committee to look into other pending issues.
