The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) has said it will proceed on an indefinite strike in research institutes nationwide if its demands are not met within 14 days.
NASU National President, Makolo Hassan, disclosed this at the opening of the body’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja.
He lamented that for 10 years, the Federal Government was yet to acknowledge the content of the agreement it freely entered into with the Joint Research and Allied Institutions Sector Unions (JORAISU) as contained in the 2010 JORAISU/FGN Agreement.
While applauding President Muhammadu Buhari for granting some incentives to teachers, NASU maintained that the same gesture should be lengthened to the non-teaching staff that complement teachers.
The union also lamented the high taxation in spite of the economic difficulties faced by workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
