University workers  have issued a strike notice  to press home their demand for the implementation of their 2009 agreement with the Federal Government.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is on strike over the same matter.

The non teaching members made up of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) said the government was taking them for granted.

Acording to The Nation, part of the demands of the three unions include:

The payment of Earned Allowances
R review of the governance system in universities
Improved funding in line with UNESCO recommendations
Provisions of infrastructure in universities and payment of salary shortfall

Ugokwe said during the strike, there will be no provision of services no matter how skeletal.

He said: “If an agreement was signed in 2009 and now in 2017, we are still asking for the implementation of such agreement, does it not show that we have been exceedingly patient?

“Unfortunately, seven years after, we are still at the sorry situation we were before the MOU as the issues in contention were not addressed and government t kept a dead silence despite letters and entreaties reminding them, of their commitment to the non teaching staff unions”
