ACADEMIC STAFF UNION OF UNIVERSITIES (ASUU) UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS BRANCH
In a statement by the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, UNILAG Chapter, the Payment of the Minimum Wage Arrears made by FG to the Union is not enough reason to suspend the ongoing Strike by the union.
The Statement Reads:
The leadership of our Branch has been inundated with calls concerning the recent payment of the long overdue arrears of the consequential adjustment of the minimum wage.
Our members are reminded that this is not one of the core demands upon which the ongoing strike action is premised. For the avoidance of doubt, the demands of our Union are: the conclusion of the renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement, abrogation of the fraudulent and corrupt IPPIS scheme and the deployment of UTAS, payment of promotion arrears, EAA etc.. proliferation of State Universities and governance iceupe amannet athane
While this unsolicited payment is welcomed by our Union, our members should please conserve the funds and spend it wisely so as to energise our struggle until all our demands are satisfactorily met..
Our Union commends the resolve and sacrifice of our members in enthroning a University system that is globally competitive.
United We Bargain! Divided We Beg!!
A People United Can Never be Defeated.
