- ASUU may commence strike on Thursday
THE Unions of Non-academic Staff (NASU, NAAT & SSANU) in the University of Ibadan, on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, have denied the claims that they had suspended their strike after a national daily reported in the early hours of Tuesday that the Unions had called off their strike and that they had resumed activities.
It was not going to take long before a representative of the Unions cleared the air and made their stance known, saying activities will still be on hold till the school management meets their demands.
It would be recalled that the non-academic staff of the university have embarked on industrial action for the past two weeks due to shortfalls in salaries and arrears.
However, the Unions’ leaders claimed to have met with the school management and hinted on the likelihood of resuming activities this week, albeit subjected to the reaction of the University management to their yearnings.
It remains unseen how the school management will react to this.
This is coupled with the rumoured ASUU strike likely to kick-off on Thursday.
According to some members of the Union, they were still paid half salary for the month of March, lamenting that some of them could not bear with the salary shortfalls any longer.
