Recall that on Friday, NASU General Secretary, Peters Adeyemi, and SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim called on all members in branches of Universities and Inter-University centres across the nation to embark on industrial action.
As a follow-up move to the statement, on Tuesday morning university workers across the country embarked on protests.
The members are protesting over irregularities in Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS) payments, non-payment of Earned Allowances, non-payment of arrears in minimum wage among others.
The unions are reportedly also protesting the sharing formula of the N70 billion given to universities by the Federal Government.
According to the unions, the 25% designated for its members is not favourable.
