University of Ibadan UI NASU suspends strike Action

UI non-academic staff
unions suspend strike

the Director of Public Communication ,
University of Ibadan , Mr . Olatunji Oladejo ,
has said that the non -academic staff unions
of the university have agreed to suspend their
week – long strike after a series of meetings
with the school management .
The suspension of the strike came as the
students of the university said that since the
commencement of the strike , they
( students ) had been living under difficult
conditions on the campus as sources of
water and electricity had been switched off
by the striking staff .
Academic and administrative activities at the
university had come to a halt on March 20 ,
2017 , when the staff declared an indefinite
strike because of what the union described
as illegal deductions of pension money from
the salaries of its staff .
The workers are also asking for their unpaid
promotion arrears , shortfall in salary payment
, and improvement in welfare, among other
issues .
Effort to speak with the chairman of the
university branch of the Senior Staff
Association of Nigerian Universities , Wale
Akinremi , by our correspondent proved
abortive as he did not pick his call when our
correspondent called his line .
However , Oladejo said administrative and
academic activities in the school would
resume on Tuesday (today ) .
“ After a series of meetings with the leaders
of the unions by the representatives of the
university’ s authority, the unions agreed to
suspend the strike and resume work on
Tuesday , ” said Oladejo , who did not give
further details of how a deal was struck
between the two parties
