Earned Allowances: Varsity workers threaten strike over sharing formula

University workers under the umbrella body of Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), has resolved to resume its suspended strike should the Federal Government proceed with the sharing formula for the N22.127 billion Earned Academic Allowances (EAA).

 

Recall that three university based unions under the Joint Action Committee which is made up of the Academic Technologists (NAAT), Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, (SSANU) and NASU have rejected the alleged 75 per cent allocated to lecturers and 25 per cent to them.

 

President of NASU, Dr Makolo Hassan, who made this known at the end of the Union’s National Executive Council meeting yesterday in Abuja, said the unending crisis associated with the unjustified sharing formula of the Earned Allowance calls to question, the sincerity of government toward the fight against corruption.

 

He said: “It is clear to us that Government officials do not give premium to issues of equity, fairness, natural justice and good conscience.

 

“Close to five years, the Non-Teaching Staff Unions in the Universities and Inter- University Centres have fought relentlessly over the disproportionate sharing formula of 80/20 per cent and 75/25 per cent to the Academic and Non-Teaching Staff in our Universities.”
