ASUU gives FG three-week ultimatum
On Monday, the Academic Staff Union of Universities issued a three-week deadline to the Federal Government for failure to meet pending demands, according to the information provided to Edustuff.
This comes as the Senior Staff Association of Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities met today to discuss their next steps following the Federal Government’s inability to meet the union’s demands.
If we can recall, last year, the federal government signed a memorandum of understanding with labor unions, promising to meet requests such as payment of earned allowances, the implementation of the UTAS platform for university workers, and the payment of a revitalization fund for universities, among other things.
Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the Union’s National President, spoke at the University of Abuja on Monday, bemoaning the Federal Government’s unwillingness to address the union’s requirements, which has left them with no choice.
“We are giving the Federal Government a three week ultimatum, if after three weeks they don’t meet our demands, we will be going on strike.
“We believe we have tried enough by giving them enough time.
