As the expiration of the warning strike by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) comprising the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) draws near, the unions have concluded plans to embark on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.

The spokesperson of JAC, Dr. Peters Adeyemi while responding to the press on Wednesday, April 13, said the union would proceed to an indefinite action after the two weeks extension of the ongoing warning strike elapses on April 24.

Adeyemi, however, gave conditions upon which their industrial action might be suspended, insisting that government should get rid of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (PPS), payment of the N30 billion Earned Allowances contained in the FGN/NASU and SSANU 2009 Agreements, among others.

He added that JAC resorted to embarking on the indefinite strike after writing over ten letters as a reminder to the federal government on the lingering issue, but never got any acknowledgment.
