Strike: FG’s meeting with ASUU deadlocked

Published

on

The meeting between the Federal Government and the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ended in a deadlock on Tuesday, February 22.

 

Last Monday, ASUU declared a one-week warning strike over claims that the Federal government has failed to meet its demands which include the revitalization of public universities, payment of earned allowances, improved funding of state universities, and promotion arrears for members. Another concern raised was the replacement of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) with the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) in the payment of emoluments to members, among others.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who convened the meeting on Tuesday February 22, led the government delegation while ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, attended alongside other leaders of the union.

 

A tweet shared by the association stated that the meeting was inconclusive.

“ASUU – FG To Negotiate On A Later Date, Meeting Inconclusive,” the union said in the tweet

 

Another tweet read,

“The conciliatory meeting between the minister of Labour and the leadership of ASUU on Tuesday evening has come to an end with both parties refusing to brief the press on the issues that were discussed.”

 

The new date for further negotiation by both parties is yet to be announced.
