The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have concluded their seven-day nationwide warning strike.

SSANU President Mohammed Ibrahim instructed SSANU and NASU members to return to work starting Monday, March 25, 2024, in a memo to branch chairmen at public universities across the country.

The unions acknowledged the significant impact of the warning strike, noting that it was widespread and effective in most universities and inter-university centers.

They commended members for their dedication, determination, and loyalty to the union’s efforts to secure the payment of four months’ withheld salaries.

“Consequently, you are hereby informed that the seven-day warning strike shall end at midnight of Sunday, 24th March 2024 and normal work will resume on Monday, 25th March 2024,” the circular read.

The unions have confirmed that they are still working on getting the withheld salaries paid.

The unions promised to continue “meaningful engagement with the relevant Government Agencies in both Executive and Legislative Arms” and notify members of the next line of action(s) to be taken.
