“The necessary inputs of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics in the proposed new scheme of service by the NBTE , before its release .
“Directed attention to issues of non -payment of complete salaries , arrears of the new minimum wage for staff in the polytechnic sub -sector, hazard and shift duty allowances to medical staff in the polytechnics, draconian tax regime from consolidated rather than basic salaries of our members and non -release of pension funds to the various Pension Funds Administrators.
“A re -prioritisation of policy by the Benue, Ondo, Ogun, Osun , Cross – River and Kano State governments toward the non – payment of complete /outstanding salaries as well as the withholding of union cheque – off dues in the Polytechnics and Colleges of Health Technology.
