Our Members Not on Strike, Says CONUA

The Congress of Nigerian University Academics has said that its members are not part of the on-going nationwide strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress.

According to a statement signed by the National President, Niyi Sunmonu, , and made available to The PUNCH on Tuesday, the union said that it was not part of the strike as it was not consulted by the organising bodies, NLC and TUC.

The statement read: “As at the moment of putting together this release, the TUC with whom CONUA submitted affiliation request has not communicated this position on strike action to it.”
