Why we’re still on strike, by ASUU, others
Unions in the university system, including the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have blamed the lingering industrial crisis in the education sector
on failure of the Federal Government to keep the collective bargaining agreement reached with them.
NLC President Ayuba Wabba stated that government’s penchant for reneging on agreements reached through collective bargaining with
labour unions was responsible for frequent industrial action being witnessed in the education sector.
Wabba’s position was re-echoed by the National President of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Samson Ugwoke,
who said the biggest challenge faced by the union was the lack of respect of agreements duly and freely entered into by government at all levels.
