Hi, what are you looking for?



The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian University, on Tuesday, warned the Professor Nimi-Briggs Committee renegotiating the 2009 Agreement that it would not accept any disparity in University staff salaries and would take every legal action to ensure that such didn’t happen.

National President of SSANU, Mohammed Ibrahim, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday on the alleged proposed salary disparity by the Nimi-Briggs Committee for the university staff.

According to him, he said that they have read in the media that there is a proposal for the review of salary for University staff with a differential of teaching staff taking between 108 to 180 per cent and an unreasonable of 10 per cent for non-teaching staff.

The SSANU boss told the committee to immediately reconvene to conclude the assignment given to it by discussing frankly and truthfully the 2009 renegotiation document presented to it.

Warning that the non-teaching staff would not take lightly any attempt to have different payment tables for staff, he said that is because the university system is a universal system comprising two broad categories of staff, the teaching, and the non-teaching staff and the salary consideration has always been the same except for allowances.

Therefore, any attempt to give preferential treatment to any group will not only be unfair but unjust and inhumane.

He added that there is no university community that can operate successfully without the two categories of staff.

Commending Senator Ngige for the role he has played in handling the negotiation of the 2009 Agreement, he said, SSANU is happy with the dexterity of the Minister of Labour and Employment in ensuring that all university-based unions are carried along in this renegotiation exercise.
