Filed in School News | By NGSchoolz Staff | Last Modified:

The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the
Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa, has given a
three-week ultimatum to the management
of the institution to address lingering staff
welfare issues or face an indefinite strike.

According to the Chairman of the union, Mrs Benedicta Njoku, who gave the threat on Thursday said: “The joint union has given the
management of this institution three weeks
ultimatum to pay 2014 staff arrears.

“We are also calling for the payment of
various staff claims, implementation of
2015 staff promotion, among others, failure
of which we will embark on indefinite
strike,” she said.

She said that payment of outstanding staff
claims and implementation of 2015 staff
promotion, among others, would improve
the living condition of the workers, boost
their morale and enhance productivity.

JAC comprised the Academic Staff Union of
Polytechnic (ASUP), Senior Staff Association
of Nigeria Polytechnic (SSANIP) and Non-
Academic Staff Union (NASU).

Njoku said that the union had several
meetings with the management on the
union’s demands, but lamented that the
efforts remained fruitless, hence the
warning for the ultimatum.

Reacting to the development, Dr Hassan
Sani, the Deputy Rector of the polytechnic,
said that efforts were on to address the
union’s demands to sustain prevailing peace
in the institution.

He assured the staff of the management’s
resolve to improve their working conditions.
Sani urged the union members to remain
calm as the polytechnic needed their
maximum cooperation to address her
challenges and move greater heights. (NAN)
