The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the four workers’ unions in Ondo State-owned tertiary institutions will, today, begin an indefinite strike following the refusal of the state government to accede to its demands.

Daily Trust reports that the unions include the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP).

The four institutions are Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba (AAUA), Ondo State University of Science and Technology Okitipupa; Ondo State University of Medical Sciences, Ondo; and Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo.

A copy of the notice of their industrial action was contained in a statement signed by JAC chairperson, Tayo Ogungbeni, and Secretary, Kunle Akinwonmi.

JAC said: “Having exhausted all means of getting our plight looked into by our Visitor – the Governor of Ondo State, Prince Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, the leadership of JAC of Ondo State tertiary institutions by this letter is sending a notice of indefinite strike with effect from Monday, 26th February 2024 until the aforementioned concerns are attended to,” the unions said.

The unions had listed issues in contention to include the non-payment of wage award of N35,000 as being paid to other workers in the state; and the non-implementation of the 2019 minimum wage in some of the state-owned tertiary institutions.

It explained that the unions have jointly explored several options to have the government attend to their demands and alleviate the plights of members but that the efforts have failed.
