NASU Decries IPPIS, Threatens industrial Unrest if FG Persists :
NON—ACADEMIC Staff Union of Education and Association Institutions, NASU, has decried the way Federal Government Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System, IPPIS, is allegedly inflicting pains on its members and the union, threatening industrial unrest if the situation persists.
NASU members in the research and allied institutions, in a communiqué at the end of the research and projects trade group council regular meeting, noted that virtually all its branches had keyed into the government IPPIS, but lamented that it had inflicted more pains on its membership and the union.
According to them, the branches that had keyed into the system had suffered severally as union dues, staff cooperatives and other welfare deductions were not made and where they were deducted it was not paid.
It argued that this could be as a way of stifling the union of fund and render it ineffective in delivering services to her members, calling on government “to urgently redress the situation to correct this abnormality if they do not want to encounter the wrath of the union.”
Members at the meeting however, expressed happiness with the progress recorded so far on the grey areas in the agreement between government and the unions in the research and allied institutions. (Vanguard)
