5-DAY WARNING STRIKE OF SSANU, NASU AND NAAT: ANOTHER SIGN THAT BUHARI GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED PUBLIC EDUCATION

We Support the Strike and Call on Government to avoid further disruption of academic calendar by meeting all demands

The Education Rights Campaign fully supports the decision of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NASU) to embark on a 5-day warning strike from January 16 to compel the federal government to fully implement the tenets of the 2009 FGN/ Non Teaching Staff Union agreement.

ERC SUPPORTS ASUU'S WARNING STRIKE OVER NON-IMPLEMENTATION OF 2009 AGREEMENT

CALLS FOR DEMOCRATIC MANAGEMENT OF UNIVERSITIES

FOR A JOINT ACTION OF EDUCATION WORKERS AND STUDENTS

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is holding a week long warning strike that started on Wednesday, November 16, over the failure of the federal government to honour its aspects of the FGN-ASUU 2009 agreement. This agreement contains a commitment of government to upwardly fund education sector and pay outstanding wages of the academic staff. The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) fully supports the consistent struggle of ASUU for the implementation of this agreement. And we hold that the failure of Buhari government to uphold the terms of this agreement shows that there is no fundamental difference between Buhari and previous regimes that have reneged on this agreement and further eroded an already rotten education system.

Economic Recession: Failure of Capitalism

Working People Must Defend Living Standards

The Socialist Party of Nigeria sees the Second Quarter 2016 report of National Bureau of Statistics which officially confirms the sliding of Nigerian economy into recession as a bitter confirmation of the failure of capitalism and the incapacity of Nigerian ruling elites to move the nation forward.

We call on the labour movement to reject and resist the current situation in which workers and the poor masses, who did not significantly benefit anything at the period of boom, are being made to bear the burden of the crisis of capitalism and failure of capitalist ruling elite.

We however call on them to match their words with action by coming out with concrete program of actions that would help win the demand.

LABOUR MUST ORAGANISE UNEMPLOYED YOUTHS, BUILD MASS RESISTANCE AND DEFEND YOUNG WORKERS

*Time to fight casualization, poverty wages, mass unemployment and underfunded education

The Campaign for Democratic and Workers’ Rights welcomes the decision of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to adopt a Youth Policy and convene a National Youth Conference on September 14 and 15.

This conference is being held against the background of what is widely seen as a grave economic and social crisis gripping the country. Nigeria’s very young population is facing a grim future unless there is rapid, radical change.

Attacks on Nasarawa Workers by the Police: We Call for Justice

• The Labour leadership should mobilize for a 24 hour general strike and nationwide mass actions to confront the monster of nonpayment of salaries across the country

The Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) condemns in absolute terms the killing and brutalization of protesting workers of Nasarawa State by trigger-happy police men in Lafia on Friday, July 29. We in the SPN call for the immediate arrest and prosecution of police officers who sanctioned and carried out this dastardly act. Labour must call immediate nationwide solidarity actions like mass protests and rallies as part of a campaign to ensure that the culprits are brought to book in order to serve as deterrent to others.
