The Federal Government is considering reversing the directive to sack workers of universities’ staff schools.
Also, the over 2,000 workers allegedly affected by the circular to vice chancellors to remove their names from the government pay roll may soon be recalled.
The National Salaries and Wages Commission directed universities to sack the workers, saying the government would no longer bear the cost of running staff schools.
The situation had pitched the government and members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities. The union embarked on an indefinite strike on December 24, arguing that the directive was a contravention of the 2009 agreement between the government and the union.
