Teachers To Begin Strike On Friday In Edo State

The Edo State chapter of the
Nigeria Union of Teachers
(NUT) says it will commence
an indefinite strike on Friday
due to government's failure
to meet its demands. The union had given the state
government a 21-day
ultimatum to meet its
demand or face an industrial
action. A communique signed by Pius
Oaikhena Okhueleigbe and
Moni Mike Modesty Itua, the
chairman and the acting
secretary of the union, read:
"The union magnanimously gave another seven-day
extension period to the
government to meet our
demand which ended 13th of
September. And failure to meet the
demand, Edo state public
school teachers will
commence an indefinite
strike action with effect from
Friday 14th, the statement stated. The teachers' demands
include the financial
implementation of the 2013
to 2015 primary school
teachers promotions as
approved by the government with the arrears of last
January to July inclusive as
well as teachers deliberated
omitted or denied
promotions by the State
Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).
