The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions on Saturday has announced the suspension of their 2 months ongoing strike.
The National President of SSANU Muhammed Ibrahim stated this while speaking to reporters.
The leader of the association said the group has suspended the strike that lasted for a period of two months.
The unions had called for the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement, payment of earned allowances, usurpation of non-academic career positions by vice-chancellors, the inclusion of university staff school into the university community, non-payment of minimum wage arrears, and funding of state universities.
A committee set up by the Federal Government and headed by the Emeritus Professor, Nimi Briggs had engaged in negotiations with the two unions.
Ibrahim did not disclose the demands of the unions which had been met, the minister of education, Adamu Adamu during a press briefing with state house correspondents last Thursday noted that the government had reached agreements with all the university based unions except ASUU which the minister claimed was requesting for payment of backlog of salaries.
