The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), OAUSTECH Chapter, have reportedly suspended its strike action which lasted for two weeks.
Following the ASUU National Executive (NEC) meeting held yesterday in the University of Ilorin, it was concluded that the ongoing strike action has been suspended with immediate effect.
According to the memo released to Stechitegist Correspondence, the approval of the NEC suspension was based on the Memorandum of Action signed by both parties to address the listed items in the agreement, the resolution of the congress affrims the Memorandum of Action and the strong believe that the university Administration will faithfully follow and execute the terms and conditions contained in the agreement.
The union appreciates the efforts of the Chairman of the Governing council for the quality role played towards resolving the subsisting issues and his promise to ensure that the Memorandum of Action will be fully implemented.
In addition, the Union appreciates the commitment of the Vice Chancellor in ensuring peaceful resolution of the crisis without bitterness.
The union strongly holds that none of her members will be victimized or persecuted for taking part in the action in whatever way or form, Stechitegist reports.
Members are thereby directed to resume normal academic activities with immediate effect in which the second semester Examination is to commence August 16, 2021.
