Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, will tomorrow join the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU on strike as the union said it has mobilized its members across the country to embark on industrial action over alleged stoppage of their salaries for two months.

In a letter dated 27 September, 2013, and addressed to its branch chairmen in all the universities in the country, SSANU directed its members to stay away from work from tomorrow until the salaries are fully paid.

The President of SSANU, Comrade Samson Ugwoke, said the strike will be total, while the General Secretary, who signed the letter directing members to stay at home from tomorrow, Comrade Promise Adewusi, said no member should go back to work until a counter directive was given.

Adewusi stated that the union took the decision following its letters to the vice-chancellors in universities, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, Ministers of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu and Education, Nyesom Wike, as well as the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie.
