The National Association of Academic Technologies (NAAT), has suspended its three months strike, ‘to enable the government time to conclude negotiations and implementation of NAAT’s demands’.

The National President of NAAT, Mr. Ibeji Nwokoma, made this known while addressing newsmen after the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union in Abuja on Thursday.

“It is important to state that at the expiration of the three months window period, NAAT will not hesitate to resume the suspended strike action without notice if all the issues agreed upon with the Minister of Education, on behalf of the government, are not holistically addressed.

“The National Executive Council, in the interest of the nation, unanimously resolved to suspend the ongoing strike action for three months to enable the government to address all the issues at stake, effective from midnight of Friday, August 26, 2022.”

“On the Federal Government of Nigeria position to invoke the No work, No pay rule, NAAT totally reject this in its entirety as we are not the architect of the prolonged strike action but rather FGN’s failure to address all the contending issues promptly. It should be noted that NAAT complied with all laid down procedures before embarking on the industrial action.

“Therefore, NAAT demands in strong terms the payment of our withheld salaries without delay,” Nwokoma.
