Strike: ASUP to Meet FG Negotiation Team January 10

By - - [ ]


Hope that strike embarked upon by polytechnic lecturers would be called off before the end of the year was thursday dashed when the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) said it would meet with the federal government negotiation team on January 10, 2019.

National President of ASUP, Mr. Usman Dutse, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the new date was communicated to the union.

Dutse said the meeting became necessary because the last meeting held on December 17 in Abuja was inconclusive.

He said the union would continue with its strike until they were satisfied with the offer from the government.

The ASUP president said the report presented by the government during the last meeting was not acceptable to the union.

“We are meeting with the federal government representatives on January 10, to continue with our discussion.

“The last meeting we had with the government was inconclusive.

“We met with the government representatives and we discussed issues on the previous agreements at the last meeting, but government was not sincere.

“We demanded that more things should be done because what they presented was not acceptable.

“We told them that we were not satisfied with the report they gave us.

“Another meeting has been fixed for January 10,” he said.

Dutse urged the federal government to pay more attention to polytechnic education and prioritise the sector in the new year.

He said the sector has been underfunded and neglected for too long.

The polytechnic teachers began an indefinite strike on December 12, over non implementation several agreements by the federal government.

The demands of the striking union include implementation of NEEDS assessment report, payment of CONTISS 15 arrears, implementation of scheme of service, non-payment of salaries in state-owned institutions, and victimisation of members, among others.

The strike has crippled academic activities in many polytechnics across the country
