The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions members working in Nigeria offices of the West Africans Examination Council, WAEC, will withdraw their services as from October 14.
News Agency reports that the General Secretary of NASU, Peters Adeyemi, in a statement on Sunday, said the action became necessary following WAEC management’s delay in responding to the union’s previous letters.
In the letters NASU listed review of scheme of service, the need to create more establishments for its members and the refusal of the management to implement the policy on ex-grata, among others.
According to Adeyemi, none of the union’s letters to WAEC management had been responded to so far.
The union said the review of the scheme of service has been lingering since the year 2013 till date without any positive resolution despite the union’s favourable disposition to collective bargaining with the WAEC management on the matter.
The NASU scribe, who described the level of stagnation of officers in the council as worrisome, said the situation was a clear case of injustice to the affected staff.
