ASUU BEGINS WARNING STRIKE TODAY, STATE REASONS
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has embarked on a two-week warning strike with effect from today..
The strike was declared by the National Executive Committee of ASUU which ended its meeting in Enugu on today Monday according to reports by Premium Times.
The President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, announced the strike in Enugu.
The strike is following the decision of the federal government to stop salaries of lecturers who have not enrolled in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
ASUU is opposed to the use of IPPIS for lecturers.
The strike action is also to compel federal government to implement the agreements and resolutions of Memorandum of Action discussed in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoU), all of which have not been implemented, officials of the lecturers’ union said.
