Polytechnic Lecturers Declare Nationwide Indefinite Strike Today

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has said it is commencing an indefinite nationwide strike on Wednesday (today).

Usman Dutse, The ASUP National President, confirmed this in an interview on Tuesday, saying the strike would continue because the Federal Government had failed to implement the 2009 and 2017 agreements it entered with the union.

The ASUP Boss said the touchy areas which necessitated the strike included the non-implementation of the NEEDS assessment report of 2014, non-payment of salaries and allowances in many state-owned polytechnics, pension deductions and other statutory deductions from staff salaries after work.

it can be recalled that the ASUP held its 93rd National Executive Council meeting at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos State, on November 29, where it was first announced its intentions to embark on a strike that would begin on December 12.

Dutse told newsmen that the union expected a total compliance in all public polytechnics on the strike, starting from Wednesday.

Dutse said ;

“The strike is starting on Wednesday and there is no going back. We expect total compliance in all our polytechnics. December 17 has been fixed for a meeting between the Federal Government’s team and us. The government gave us that date and when we get to the meeting, we will see what is on the table.”
