The union reached an agreement, after meeting with the government team led by Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, in Abuja, on Friday.
The government also pledged to increase the total payment to the union to N70 billion.
Recall that the Federal Government accepted the demand by the union that they be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) pending the approval of their proposed payment system, the University Transparency and Accountability Solution.
