ASUP Issues One-Month Strike Ultimatum
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics has issued a one-month ultimatum to the government for the resumption of strike action.
The union had suspended its industrial action which ran for 61 days in June 2021 after reaching an agreement with the government.
ASUP’s national president, Anderson Uzeibe, said the decision became necessary after the government failed to implement important aspects of the memorandum of action signed with the union nine months ago.
The union also added that the government was yet to release the sum of N15 billion as the first tranche of the N800 billion revitalisation fund nine months after the approval by President Muhammadu Buhari.
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.
