The Joint Action committee of the three 'striking' unions of Non-Teaching workers of Nigerian universities, declared her intention to punish branch executives 'wherever the strike is not found effective'.
The letter sent on Monday, signed by the national chairmen of Non-Academic Staff of Universities and Associated Institutions (NASU), Senior staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) and National Association of Academic Technologist (NAAT), presented a review of the strike action embarked on last year over the 11% of the Earned allowance disbursed by the Federal Government.
The committee addressed the issue of concessions at branch levels as some of them are offering skeletal services in their respective universities despite the on-going strike. An act, which the committee frowns against.
Moreover, it was stated that the committee of the workers condemned the harassment of her members by the Vice-chancellors in form of a coercion to get them back to work.
"JAC is addressing this ugly development at appropriate quarters." letter assured.
However, investigations by OAU KILONSHELE proved that two members of Obafemi Awolowo University branch of the Non Teaching staff unions, were detained during a recent barricade of roads but they've been released.
Furthermore, the committee stressed the importance of unity amidst members as regards the success of the struggle and implored members not to succumb to pressure from their universities' management bodies.
