The Federal Government and the Joint Action Committee of the non-teaching staff of Nigerian Universities have reached an agreement over the ongoing strike by the workers.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, CHRIS NGIGE, said this at a conciliatory meeting with the leadership of the JAC of the unions and other officials of the Ministry of Education today in Abuja.
The non-teaching staff of Nigerian universities under the auspices of JAC embarked on strike on Monday over non- implementation of the 2009 agreement.
The workers belong to the National Association of Academic Technologists, Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities.
The demands of the unions included the payment of earned allowances, a review of the governance system in universities and improved funding in line with UNESCO recommendations.
