The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has accused the University vice chancellors of sabotaging their effort to end the three-week strike, TheNation reports.
Union accuses vice chancellors of sabotage
The union embarked on an indefinite strike on the 24th of December to protest the decision of federal government to remove the names of the Universities Staff School workers from its pay roll.
Chairman of the University of Ibadan (UI) SSANU, Comrade Wale Akinremi, said at its congress that 24 hours after meeting with the minister of Education, vice-chancellors started advertising vacancy for the positions of our members.
He said: “After the minister of Education told us we should let them look into the matter and will call us to suspend the strike, less than 24 hours later the universities started advertising vacancy for the positions of our members.
“This shows that the vice-chancellors are not interested in the peaceful industrial relations in the university sector and it is unfair to the this administration, which is keen on restoring the lost glory of education.”
