Members of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) have started a two-week warning strike from today (Monday). Ibeji Nwokoma, NAAT President, in a statement, alleged that the warning strike was as a result of the failure of the Federal Government to implement a 2009 agreement. According to the statement, the commencement of the two-week strike followed the end of the 14-day ultimatum given to the government. He explained that all laboratories, workshops, studios and farms, for the period of the warning strike, would be shut down following the resolution during a virtual meeting of the associationâ€™s National Executive Council. According to Ibeji Nwokoma, 97.8 per cent of the branches of the association voted in favour of the industrial action. He explained, â€œIn the meantime, branches are also directed to hold congresses on Monday, 21st March, 2022, in the morning, to declare the commencement of the warning strike in their respective branches.â€ He further explained that branches are directed to constitute monitoring teams to ensure compliance and enforcement of the warning strike.
