UNN shut down as NASU embarks on strike

Administrative activities have been paralyzed at the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) following the indefinite strike declared on Monday by Joint Action Committee of Non-Teaching Staff Trade Unions (JAC) of the University.
Members of the executive present when the resolution to embark on the indefinite strike was made include: SSANU Chairman, Comrade Paul Erua, NAAT Chairman Comrade Emma Mbaoji and NASU Chairman, Comrade Clifford Amoke.
Addressing members of non- teaching staff, the chairman of JAC, Comrade Paul Erua said they are embarking on the strike because of the failure of the University to pay them their deserve allowances such as hazard allowance, over time, shift allowance, union check-off dues as well as payment of 15 percent deducted June salary among others.
‘’We are embarking on this indefinite strike as a last resort after every attempt by JAC to make the University meet our demands failed.
‘’We gave the University five day and after that gave them another 21 days to enable the management do the needful but ignored us.
‘’It is unfortunate that what our colleagues in other Universities are enjoying is been denied us in UNN’’, he said.
Erua directed members to proceed on indefinite strike pending on when they received bank alerts of their allowances.
It would be recalled that members of the union overwhelmingly supported the indefinite strike was called by JAC.
The union in other to ensure full compliance of the indefinite strike set up a 10 man monitoring committee to enforce the strike on erring members.
‘’This indefinite strike is total; all offices must be closed as well as the University medical centre.
