Nasarawa Tertiary Institutions Suspends 3 Weeks Strike – work to begin on Monday

Joint Union of Nasarawa State Tertiary
Institutions, JUNSTI have suspended the three-
week old strike they had embarked on due to
the inability of the state government to meet
their demands.
Tertiary institutions owned by the Nasarawa
state government under the aegis of Joint Union
of Nasarawa State Tertiary Institutions (JUNSTI),
yesterday suspended the three-week old strike
they had embarked on since October 19, 2015
demanding for seven items, to include the 2013
promotion arrears, 2014 and 2015 promotion
arrears and implementation, downward review of
their taxes and for the re- visitation of their
academic programmes, the autonomy of the
higher institutions and also for the five-year
domestication of their academic programmes.
The suspension of the strike was contained in a
press release signed by the chairman of Joint
union, Ariks Samuel Bashayi. The release stated
that the strike was suspended to pave way for
the amicable resolution of the matters raised
within the period of the plea by the state
assembly, standing committee on education,
science and technology.
The release therefore called on all its members
to resume work tomorrow (Monday), assuring
them that they would not be victimized in any
way for partaking in the strike.
