CONUA appeals to Federal Government for payment of salary arears

The Congress of University Academics, CONUA, is appealing to the Federal Government to pay the salaries of members and those of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, who embarked on strike last year.

Although the Federal Government has commenced the process of paying members of CONUA the withheld salaries since they were not part of the strike, the president of the newly approved Union, Dr. Niyi Sunmonu is, however, appealing to the Federal Government that all lecturers be paid

CONUA President made the appeal while addressing journalists shortly after the maiden National Executive Council meeting of the Union in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

It was at the maiden National Executive Council meeting of the Congress Of University Academics, CONUA. Where Niyi Sunmonu was ratified as the National President of the union.

After about eight hours of deliberations, the National President of the Union, Doctor Niyi Sunmonu read the Communique.

Maintaining that CONUA did not declare a strike, Sunmonu further said his members wanted to work during the period, but could not do so, due to the absence of students on campuses.

He stated that it will be unjust for the federal Government to apply ‘No work No pay’ policy on members.
