Members of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) have started a two-week warning strike from today (Monday).
Ibeji Nwokoma, NAAT President, in a statement, alleged that the warning strike was as a result of the failure of the Federal Government to implement a 2009 agreement.
According to the statement, the commencement of the two-week strike followed the end of the 14-day ultimatum given to the government.
He explained that all laboratories, workshops, studios and farms, for the period of the warning strike, would be shut down following the resolution during a virtual meeting of the association’s National Executive Council.
According to Ibeji Nwokoma, 97.8 per cent of the branches of the association voted in favour of the industrial action.
He explained, “In the meantime, branches are also directed to hold congresses on Monday, 21st March, 2022, in the morning, to declare the commencement of the warning strike in their respective branches.”
He further explained that branches are directed to constitute monitoring teams to ensure compliance and enforcement of the warning strike.
