The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU), has threatened to embark on an industrial action if the Federal Government refuses to withdraw the circular directing that workers of the Staff schools should not be captured in the 2022 budget.
The President of SSANU, Mr Mohammed Haruna, gave this warning on Sunday while speaking with newsmen in Abuja.
According to Haruna, an alleged circular was seen from the Budget Office directing that teachers in Staff Schools should be removed from the Consolidated Salary Scale, CONTISS, in the 2022 budget.
Stating the implication of this development, Haruna said “if the government should go ahead to implement this directive, over 3,000 of our members would be affected.”
He also added that the reopening of the matter that had been decided by the National Industrial Court would affect the industrial harmony being enjoyed in the universities as there is a subsisting court judgment in favour of the union.
However the SSANU boss has promised to “fight” the development to finish.
