ASUU STRIKE UPDATE: Has ASUU Extended The Strike?

by toffee_plug

Has ASUU Extended The Strike: The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) early Monday morning extended the ongoing strike by 12 weeks.

The decision was taken at an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) held at ASUU Secretariat in Abuja.

The emergency meeting, which had in attendance principal officers and branch chairmen, started on Sunday and ended early Monday morning.

The two-month rollover strike declared on March 14, 2022, by ASUU ended today (May 9th), thus NEC felt the need to extend it by 12 weeks after initial agitation for the indefinite strike because of failure to address the issues in contention.

The implication of the extension of the strike is that public universities would remain close.

At the last meeting with the government negotiation team led by Prof. Nimi Briggs, ASUU officials worked out but there is an indication that both parties would meet next week.

ASUU’s demands include the non-implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MoA) signed with the government in December 2020 on funding for the revitalization of public universities (both federal and state), renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ ASUU Agreement, and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Other outstanding issues are earned academic allowances; state universities, promotion arrears, withheld salaries, non-remittance of third-party deductions, and rejection of UTAS that the ASUU technical team developed to replace the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
