The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics, SSANIP has fixed January 4, 2021 to begin strike over failure of IPPIS to meet the peculiarities of polytechnic staff.
President of SSANIP, Adebanjo Ogunsipe at a briefing in Abuja on thursday said the union is also demanding for immediate implementation of NEEDS assessment report and release of funds as done for the universities
SSANIP is also unhappy with non payment of complete salaries and arrears of minimum wage for polytechnic staff.
The polytechnics senior staff is also demanding for the release of the scheme of service for the polytechnic immediately, which has been put on hold by the National Board For Technical Education, NBTE for three years without any explanation.
If the polytechnic lecturers make good their threat to go on strike, they would join their university countertops who have been on an indefinite strike for close to one year now.
