NASU Urges FG To Pay Salary Arrears For Period Of Strike

The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) said it expects the Federal Government to pay salary arrears for the four months their industrial action lasted.

Mr Peters Adeyemi, General Secretary of NASU, said this while addressing a news conference at the union ongoing National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja.

Adeyemi said that NEC expects the federal government to make arrangements for payment of the salary arrears.

According to NASU, since all parties within the University system have suspended their industrial actions, it behooves on government to start reviewing those hard stance it took while the tertiary institutions were under lock and key.

He said this should serve as a veritable opportunity for government to sit down and begin to address the existing demands by the unions, one of which is the salary arrears.

Adeyemi also said that under no circumstance would the government sweep the issue under the carpet, especially when the government obliged the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) similar gesture after they suspended their two months strike.

The Minister of Labour and Employment also facilitated the payment and he is still there, I am confident he will facilitate this payment.
