The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has kick-started a two-weeks national warning strike with effect from Monday, 9th March.
According to the National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, who announced this at end of the National Executive Council meeting (NEC), the strike action was to compel federal government to implement the agreements and resolutions of Memorandum of Action discussed in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoU), all of which have not been implemented.
“Having discussed the provisions in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding and the 2017 Memorandum of Action which have not been implemented, NEC resolved to embark on two weeks warning strike action with effect from Monday 9th March 2020, to compel the Government to implement the agreement and resolution,” Ogunyemi stated.
Naija News recalls that the Academic Staff Union of Universities had earlier threatened to declare a national strike over non-payment of salaries of lecturers that are not enrolled into the Federal Government Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
