Please refer to our circular titled: Re: Extension by One Month dated 23 May 2022, which was seq to our earlier circular dated 21th April 2022 on the same subject.
We wish to thank all members of NASU and SSANU for their sustained compliance with the Nation directive on the ongoing strike action. The compliance of members, even in the face of the denials of o salaries, threats and harassments, has continued to give the national leadership the needed strength an focus to forge ahead on our demands
The success recorded by the JAC of NASU and SSANU over the payment of the Minimum Wa Consequential Adjustment arrears, which all staff in the University system benefitted, was only ma possible by the resilience of our members. We note however, that we still have a few members acro the Branches and from the Federal Universities of Agriculture who are yet to be paid. JAC is not rest on its cars and shall ensure these omissions are resolved.
We have continued to follow up on the resolution reached with the Government at the Tripartita Pl meeting held on Thursday, 12 May 2022 with respect to the testing of our University Peculiar Personn and Payroll System (U3PS) software with the National Information Technology Development Agem (NITDA). The three payment solutions- U3PS, UTAS and IPPIS, are currently being subjected to da tests which have spanned three weeks so far and are still ongoing. While there has not been any fin report, we are proud to inform you that our presentations have been very brilliant and impressive. W wish to also assure our members that the U3PS has been conceived to cater for ALL salary tables as allowances operational in the University system and there is no reason to fear exclusion by any grow within the system.
The negotiations with the Government team is ongoing even though at an exceedingly slow pace.
“We have also recorded success in the restoration of Responsibility Allowance to deserving members NASU and SSANU, ditto, the correction of the payment of Hazard Allowance from 180,000 to 360,0 per annum to deserving members in the SSANU document. However, there has been no commitment Government to pay the arrears of Earned Allowances being owed our members
In view of the fact that Government is still a long way from effectively resolving the issues in contention s only expedient that we allow the process to be fully concluded before directing the end of the strike Consequently, you are hereby informed that the strike has been extended by two months, within whi wwe are hoping that all the contentious issues would have been effectively laid to rest. The two month extension is with effect from Friday, 24 June 2022
We urge you to keep up the spirit across the Branches as we are slowly inching close to victory. We all rge you to disregard various rumors and misinformation especially on social media and rely on you National leaders who are ever willing to give factual and true information on the status of the struggle
