ASUP THREATENS STRIKE, FEW DAYS AFTER ASUU EMBARKED ON A WARNING STRIKE

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics ASUP has asked its members to be ready to stop work at any time when the need arises This was stated by the National President of the union, Mr. Anderson Umezurike Ezeibe while addressing members of the union at Hussain Adamu Federal Polytechnic, Kazaure.

The directive is coming a few days after the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU embarked on four weeks warning strike.

He said the ASUP had called off its industrial action on June 10th 2021 based on agreements it reached with the Federal Government.

Anderson explained that part of the agreement include the release of N15 billion for the revitalisation of Polytechnics and Monotechnics and payment of the arrears of minimum wage, the inauguration of the governing council and the pay as you earned liability issue”

He said since the agreement was reached, the Federal Government has only fulfilled a few while others have not been achieved.

Despite the suspension of the strike the revitalization fund is yet to be released after its approval by the President Muhammadu Buhari as well as the minimum wage arrears”

Renegotiation document is still on, the renegotiation process of the agreement is also going on”

“Therefore strike is a legitimate instrument of engagement for Government failure to meet our demands,” he said.

He noted that the NEC will take its possible decision on its next meeting to hold in March in Mubi.

“Strike is a decision taken by National Executives, so any time we give a progress report if it doesn’t meet the approval and satisfaction of NEC strike became an option”
