Academic Staff Union of Universities( ASUU) has commenced indefinite strike citing reasons of noncompliance by the Government with the agreement.
During a press briefing by the union’s President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said the Federal Government had failed to address the issues raised by its members.
It was reported that the union had demanded for 18 months to develop its alternative payment application, the University Transparency and Accountability System (UTAS), as its preferred mode for the payment of salaries of academic staff.
Ogunyemi explained that the strike action became necessary following the Federal Government’s refusal to address issues raised in its 2019 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as well as its objection to joining the Integrated Pay Roll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS)
Furthermore, he said the industrial action takes effect today, today Monday March 23.
