CONUA and NAMDA receives certificate of registration

Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige has presented certificates of registration to the Congress of University Academics (CONUA) and National Association Of Medical And Dental Academics (NAMDA), two breakaway labour unions from the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU).

Speaking at the official presentation of certificates to the two unions in Abuja, the labour Minister warned the unions against incessant industrial action and urged them to embrace dialogue whenever they have a misunderstanding with their employers.

Dr. Ngige maintained that the Federal Government will continue to enforce the no work, no pay policy on any union that embarks on industrial action.

He urged the new unions to operate within the provisions of the labour laws.

The two unions came into limelight in October last year in the heat of an eight-month strike by ASUU.
