 SSANU, NASU Proposed Strike Is Illegal – Ngige
Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige has expressed that any strike by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities would be illegal.

He also expressed that any industrial action by the varsity workers might prompt the ministry to take legal action.

Dr Ngige made this known while speaking to State House correspondents after a private meeting with the president in Abuja.

He stated that the last conversation the government had with the non-teaching staff ended with a plan by both parties to meet next week to continue negotiations.

He, therefore, stated that any planned strike before that will be regarded as a breakdown in negotiations.

He added that if the negotiation and what has been agreed is not obeyed, then the ministry might have to refer the dispute upwards from the industrial arbitration panel to the national industrial court.
