ASUU Order Members To Commence Indefinite Strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has ordered its individuals throughout the country to start indefinite strike.
Abiodun Ogunyemi, countrywide president of ASUU, disclosed this to reporters after a assembly of leaders of the union on the Federal University of Technology, Akure, the Ondo state, on Sunday.
He stated the union took the selection due to the terrible investment of universities within the country, failure at the aspect of the authorities to honour the memorandum of expertise (MoU) signed among the union and the federal authorities in 2017.
Ogunyemi stated all appeal made to the federal government to honour the settlement with the union fell on deaf ears, saying they had no different alternative but to start the strike.
He directed all individuals of the union throughout various universities to make certain complete compliance until their needs are met.
“Having waited patiently for action and meaningful negotiation with reasonable men using the principle of collective bargaining, ASUU at its NEC meeting of 3rd and 4th November 2018 at the Federal University of Technology resolved to resume the nationwide strike action it suspended in September 2017 with immediate effect,” he said.
“This strike will be total, comprehensive and indefinite. Our members shall withdraw their services until government fully implements all outstanding issues as contained in the MOA of 2017, and concludes the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements.
“We have today been subjected to 20 years of continued re-colonisation under alleged democracy in which all the ruling class have been regrouping among themselves in their various factions they called political parties.”
Nigeria Daily times recalls Labour unions have also announced plans to commence nationwide strike from Tuesday, 6th November over the amount for the new national minimum wage.
