Members of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) have commenced a five-day industrial action.
This followed the directive of the Joint Action Committee of NASU and SSANU to all branch chairmen of the unions across the country.
The leadership of both unions earlier in a press statement said that the industrial action was as a result of the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum given to the Federal Government.
They also accused the government of failing to show firm commitment towards resolving the issues raised by the unions, including the payment of earned allowances to members.
Others are the status of the university staff schools matter and the renegotiation of 2009 Agreements.
At the university of Lagos, NASU and SSANU Executives ensured that members comply with the directive.
