SSANU strike paralyses activities at UNN

12 December 2012, 10:07

Enugu - The one-week warning strike by the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) has paralysed administrative activities at the UNN.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that all administrative offices were under lock and key, including the office of the public relations officer.

Executives of SSANU-UNN monitored the strike to ensure compliance.

Mr Sylva Ugwuda, the Chairman of SSANU-UNN, told NAN in Nsukka on Tuesday that all the offices were under lock and key in compliance with the directives of the national body.

``We are ensuring that the strike is total in UNN. We told our members to relax at home until the warning strike is over,” he said

Ugwuda described as unfortunate the inability of Federal Government to implement the 2009 agreement reached with the union and the attempt to treat members of the union as Federal Ministry of Education workers.

When contacted, the National President of SSANU, Mr Samson Ugwuoke, said the warning strike would lead to an indefinite one if the government failed to meet its demands.

 “The warning strike may lead to indefinite strike if the government did not implement the 2009 agreement as well as stop the present move to sack many SSANU members in public universities.
