Asup Threatens To Begin Vast Strike November 13

Asup Threatens To Begin Vast Strike November 13

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics has disclosed that it will embark on strike with effect from November 13, 2017 to get register their grievances over the non implementation of its agreement with the government.

The ASUP National President, Usman Dutse, said the union would commence an indefinite strike after the expiration of its earlier 21 days ultimatum.

The ASUP leader who accused the government of using endless verification to delay the payment of entitlements of members of the union equally noted that the conciliatory meeting organised by the Federal Ministry of Labour yielded no result as the Ministry of Education was not interested in resolving the dispute.

“Until now, it should be noted that the issues raised here today have been there since 2014 and none of them has since been concretely resolved to improve the sector.”

The issues include non-implementation of the NEEDS assessment report which recommended the injection of N6.5 billion into the polytechnic education in 2014, adding that this has risen to about N8bn now as well as the Amendment Bill of the Polytechnics Act.

“The delay and indifference to the passage of this bill is viewed as a ploy to fester chaos and continued crises in the sector,” Dutse stressed

This followed an emergency meeting held on Monday in Abuja
