Teachers in Taraba State, under the aegis of Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) has declared a three days warning strike starting from 31st of May to 2nd June, 2016 over the non-payment of their salaries by the state government.
Announcing the strike in Jalingo yesterday, the state chairman of NUT, Comrade Aliyu Mafindi said the state governor failed to address the demands of teachers which were submitted to him in December, 2015.
He added that unpaid arrears of salaries of primary school teachers, lack of implementation of the promotions of primary and post primary school teachers among other demands were reasons for declaring the three days warning strike.
“The union have so many demands we tabled before the governor. Last year the state exco of NUT gave an ultimatum to the state government to address our demands and that if nothing is done, the union would be compelled to embark on an indefinite strike and as we speak, the governor failed to address our problems,” he said.
They are calling on the Taraba state governor, Darius Ishaku to respond to their demands before the three days industrial action elapses or face a longer strike.
