The Congress of Nigerian University Academics has reacted to the ongoing strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress.
According to CONUA, its members are not part of the ongoing nationwide strike.
A statement signed by the National President, Niyi Sunmonu on Tuesday revealed that the union said that it is 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.
“Distinguished comrades should therefore note that CONUA cannot be part of the strike action that is not communicated to it. In addition, the affiliation process with the TUC has not been officially established.”
The labour unions on Monday ordered their affiliates to withdraw their services nationwide from midnight on November 14, 2023.
