Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT, has asked Enugu State Government to pay the balance of Teachers Enhancement Allowance, TEA, to teachers in the state.
National Coordinator of the union, Mr. Julius Tola, made the call in an interview with newsmen in Enugu, yesterday.
Tola said the union has requested for the complete payment of the 17.5 percent outstanding allowances to the teachers.
He said: “Any time strike comes from teachers, it permeates all stratum of the society quite unlike other industrial unions, but we are not strike mongers.
“We are not looking for where we can embark on strike. If they can afford to do one or two funny things, I mean, there is no point going on strike, but we need it.”
