The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions members working in Nigeria offices of the West Africans Examination Council, are to embarked on a strike as from October 14th.

NASU’s General Secretary Peters Adeyemi in a statement said the action became imperative following WAEC management’s delay in responding to the union’s letters.

In the letters NASU listed review of scheme of service, the need to create more establishments for its members and the rejection of the management to implement the policy on ex-grata, among others.

Adeyemi said 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 without any resolution despite the union’s disposition to collective bargaining with the WAEC management on the matter.

He described the level of stagnation of officers in the council as worrisome, saying the situation is a clear case of injustice to the affected staff.
