RESEARCH BODY

ABSTRACT

This study examines the relationship between teachers incessant strikes and students academic performance at secondary school level in Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State. The rate at which teachers of secondary school levels go on strike has become a major concern not only to the government but also to every well meaning Nigerians. Strike is always an off shoot of an unsettled dispute between the employer and the employee and when allowed to latch it must definitely have its serious effect on the products of secondary school students. The population for the study consisted of fifty teachers and fifty students from five randomly selected schools in Sagamu Local Government Educational District Area of Ogun State. Data were collected through the use of questionnaire. The research questions were formulated at the level of significance.

  • What are the effects of teachers strike in the life of their students and the Nation?
  • Who is to blame for Teacher’s strike? Is it the Government, the teachers, the students or the Educational Policy?
  • Who benefits from Teacher’s strike?
  • What is the outcome of the strike?
  • What is the way-out?

The result indicated that teachers strike actions has significance on the students academic performance. Also, delay in payment of teacher’s salary has significant influence on the student’s academic performance, though there were no significant differences between the lukewarm attitudes of Government agencies in responding to teachers demand.
CHAPTER ONE

1.0       INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background of the Study

In recent times, teachers at the secondary level had at one or the other embarked on strike actions mainly in order to back up their demand, either from the state or federal governments.

For instance, the Nation-wide civil service strike on 5th February, 1993 was staged to demand for the reduction in the price of fuel which eventually brought about the 45% relief package to cushion the effect of government unrealistic policy (Daily sketch, February 6th, 1993 page 1).

Also, the Ogun State wing of the N.U.T went on strike both teachers of Primary and Secondary schools on the 4th of February, 1994 (Daily Times, February 5th 1994 page 3) to jointly fight the non-payment of salaries and allowances of Primary School teachers for a total of 54 months.

The year 1995 has also witnessed at least two strike actions at different times by the Nigerian Union of Teachers, demanding for Government attention to improve the lots of their members on virtual issues as the professionalization of teachers and implementation of the Teachers Salary Scale (T.S.S.)

Furthermore, Nigeria has also experience another strike actions of recent in 1999 for effective payment of teachers salaries and allowances.

In recent times, another strike actions occur that teachers strike for wages in June 11, 2008 because of the increment of the salaries of Nigerian Union of Teachers, the strike goes on. Government should meet Teachers Demands, NLC, TUC, should mobilize a day of action in solidarity and labour must demand living wage for all workers now.

They went on strikes for 3days warning between 11th to 13th of June 2008 by members of Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) and call on the Government to meet their demands in order to avoid disruption of already badly shattered education section.

A strike may consist of workers refusing to attend work or picketing outside the work place or conducting business with their employer less frequently workers may occupy the work place but refuse either to do their jobs or to leave. This is known as a sit-down strike.

In France, a minimum service during strikes in public transport was a promise of Nicholas Sarkozy during his campaign for the French Presidential Election. A law “on social dialogue and continuity of public service in regular. Terrestrial transport of passengers” was adopted on August 12, 2007 and it took effect on January 1, 2008.

In United Kingdom (U.K.) strikes also occur between the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1974, sections of which were repeated by the Employment Act 1982.

In 2003, there was a firefighter dispute in United Kingdom the armed forces had to provide temporary cover, using out dated machinery and the strike actions were legal under British Labour Law.

The resultant outcome of teacher’s strike or effect of strikes is as well aimed at proffering solution that could lessen or prevent the incessant strikes of Secondary School Teachers thereby enhancing the laudable objectives of Government policy on Education.
1.2       Statement of the Problem

Teacher’s strike has now become common word in every household. This incident often leads to disruption of school calendar and automatic holidays for students without definite date for resumption. For example, the Ogun State wing Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) went on strike both Teachers in Primary and Secondary on 4th of February, 1999 (Daily Times February, 1994 gape 3) to jointly fight the non-primary school Teachers for total of 54 months.

These situation can affect the students academic because some of them will not study anything during this strike action and some that have studied their own book will not be serious on it. Another strike that occur some year’s ago for about 3 months that is between June 11th to August 4th, 2008 (Punch August 5th 2008 page 2) also affect the students especially those who sat, for NECO exam they have to stop for sometimes and called them back to start on 18th August, 2008. This affects them and their performance because there is no enough time for them to prepare, well-just 2 weeks that the Government has given to them.
1.3       Purpose of the Study

Education in Nigeria is a vehicle of progress and development. As such, Government places emphasis on the attainment of her aims and objectives as clearly spelt out in the National Policy on Education (1977).

Regrettably, these laudable objective may be married due to teachers strike, which brings about disruption in the school calendar and eventually has its toll on the students academic performance at the secondary school level.

The purpose of this study is to identify the causes of teachers strike which ranges from poor conditions of services and in like manner to critically examine the serious effects of teacher’s strikes on the performance on secondary school students. The research will also attempt to make workable recommendations that could reduce teacher’s strike thereby enhancing the student’s academic performance.
1.4       Research Question

  1. What are the effects of Teachers strike in the life of their students and the Nation?
  2. Who is to blame for Teacher’s strike? Is it the Government, the teachers, the students or the Educational policy?

iii.        Who benefits from Teacher’s strike?

  1. What is the out come of the strike?
  2. What is the way-out?

1.5       Significance of the Study

Strike actions, often simply called a strike is a stoppage caused by the mass refusal by employees to perform work. A strike usually takes place in response to employee grievances. Strike became important during the industrial revolution, when mass labour became important in factories and mines.

Strikes are sometimes used to put pressure on Governments to change policies. Occasionally, strikes destabilize the rule of a particular political party. A notable example is the Gdansk shipyard strike led by Lech Walesa, this strike was significant in the struggle for political change in Poland, and was an important mobilized effort that contributed to the fall of governments in communist East Europe.

The significance of this research study is:

  1. To serve as an eye opener to some indispensable people about teacher’s strikes.
  2. It will provide workable recommendations that would reduce teacher’s strikes.

iii.        To serve as adequate motivation and incentives for teachers to increase their job satisfaction.
