National President of NAAT, Ibeji Nwokoma, disclosed this while addressing newsmen after the National Executive Council meeting of the union on Thursday in Abuja.
Nwokoma said NAAT started the strike on March 21, 2022 to press its demands.
The demands include non-implementation of FGN/NAAT 2009 agreement, refusal to release enabling circular for the implementation of CONTISS 14 and 15 for academic technologists, including non-payment of arrears of earned Academic Grants to members.

He also revealed that after a strong engagement with the government, the union was able to secure commitments and resolutions on some of its demands, even as it rejected the ‘No Work, No Pay’ policy of the Federal Government.
He listed commitments obtained from the Federal Government to include, among others, the release of enabling circulars on CONTISS 14 and 15, agreements on the payment of arrears of minimum wage/consequence adjustments, payment of occupational hazard allowance and implementation of responsibility allowance.
