The non-academic staff unions of Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, have suspended their strike action.
The Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) of the institution have been on an indefinite strike over outstanding arrears of minimum wage and other demands.
It will be recalled that the unions under the aegis of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) had embarked on a nationwide strike on February 5 to compel the Federal Government to address their demands.
However, the LASU chapter of NASU and SSANU, also demanded payment of their members’ earned allowances and rightful position, shutting the main gate of the university to drive home their demands, which also affected the first semester examination of the institution.
While announcing suspension of the strike, the Chairman of Nasu at the institution, Moruf Sanni, said the workers suspended the strike to honour the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
