ASUP Gives FG One-Month Strike Ultimatum

Most Read

The Academic Staff of Polytechnics, ASUP has issued a one-month strike ultimatum to the Federal Government.

It is expected that if the Federal Government did not honour the Memorandum of Action it signed with ASUP, the union will be left with no better alternative than to resume the industrial action it had earlier suspended in 2021.

The National President of the Union, Anderson Uzeibe addressing journalists at the end of its 102nd National Executive Council Meeting in Yola said the government failed to release the first tranche of the N800b revitalisation fund nine after months after President Muhammadu Buhari approved the release of N15b.

He said among other issues in the fray of the lingering strike is the failure of the government to pay the outstanding areas of the national minimum wage, delay in the appointment of rectors, the non release of reviewed normative instruments for institutions, management and accreditation and breach of the provisions of the Federal Polytechnic Act as amended in 2019.

“Following exhaustive deliberation, the union’s National Executive Council has resolved to give the government a further one month as an ultimatum to address the outstanding issues as listed or face a review of the suspended industrial action by our union,” he stated.
