President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the implementation of 35% And 23% salary increments for employees of all federal tertiary institutions, which will take effect from January 1, 2024.
This was contained in an internal memo from the office of the Auditor-General, dated September 21, 2023, and addressed to Directors of Audit, Heads of Department, Heads of Units, and all staff members.
This move followed careful considerations by the Presidential Committee on Salaries on the different stages of collective bargaining across various sectors and engagements between the Federal Ministry of Education and Tertiary Institutions-based Unions during its 13th meeting.
The revised structure includes:
I. Consolidated Polytechnics and Colleges of Education Salary Structure (CONPCASS) for Academic Staff of Federal Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
II. Consolidated Tertiary Institutions Salary Structure II (CONTISS II) for non-academic Staff of Federal Universities.
III. Consolidated Tertiary Education Institutions Salary Structure (CONTEDISS) for non-Academic Staff of Federal Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
IV. Consolidated University Academic Salary Structure II (CONUASS II) for Academic Staff of Federal Universities.
