Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT, Benue State Wing has given a twenty one day ultimatum to the Benue State Government to address pending issues from previous screening or face an indefinite industrial action.

In a communique issued at the end of the State Working Executive Committee meeting and signed by the Chairman, Mr Levi Akuma and Acting State Secretary, Jeremiah Adadu averred that the union will henceforth not participate in screening activities until pending issues were addressed.

” The union will not participate in the recently proposed screening until pending issues from previous screening are fully addressed.”

They identified some of the unresolved issues to include, outstanding salary arrears of ten months since 2017, omission of Teachers on the pay role from December, 2021 to June,2022.

Others are; “non implementation of promotions to a large number of Teachers while some are denied full Implementation as well as denial of normalization after upgrade of academic qualification”.

The union however lauded Governor Samuel Ortom for providing an enabling environment for Teachers to operate with relative peace.

The ultimatum is coming on the heels of a planned protest by Concerned Pensioners in Benue State over unpaid backlog of pension arrears and gratuity owed them by the Benue State Government.
