Strike: FG undermines to summon 'no work, no compensation' against SSANU, NASU, NAAT

THE Federal Government has threatened to invoke Section 43 of the Trade Dispute Act of the labour law against the three non-teaching staff of universities, who have been on strike since December 2017.

The Joint Action Committee, JAC, which comprised Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU; Non Academic Staff Union of Educational Institutions, NASU, and National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, embarked on strike over alleged failure of government to keep its own part of the agreement with the unions.

The Section 43 of Trade Dispute Act has recommended what it called “no work, no pay,” although labour law and International Labour Organisation, ILO, Convention make provisions for labour union to embark on strike to demand for their rights.
