Striking NAAT Members Protest Withheld Salaries.

Federal University of Lafia branch of the National Association of Academic Technologists, has joined the nationwide three-days warning strike over the non-payment of four months withheld salaries of its members by the Federal Government.

The administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari had invoked the “No work, no pay,” policy, which meant that the university workers would not be paid salaries within the period they were on strike in 2022.

But President Bola Tinubu had in October 2023, directed that the university workers who embarked on a prolonged strike over the inability of the then government to address their concerns, be paid four months of their withheld salaries.

Speaking during a peaceful protest within the university premises on Wednesday, the North Central Zonal Coordinator and Chairman of NAAT in FuLafia, Kenneth Onuh, said they decided to embark on the three-day warning strike which would end on Friday to express their displeasure over the Federal Government’s neglect of the plights of their members.

He explained that members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities had long received their four months’ salary arrears as directed by the President, but members of NAAT were yet to be paid despite their several appeals to the Federal Government.
