ASUP to begin strike on December 12
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) is set to begin a nationwide strike from Wednesday, 12th December, this is as ASUU remains on strike.
In a phone interview with EduCeleb.com on Tuesday, the National President of ASUP, Usman Dutse said that this had become imminent because the Federal Government had failed to meet the demands of the polytechnic lecturers.
Prior to this impending strike, the union had on 2nd October issued a 21 day ultimatum to the government before it extended it to November but did not eventually go strike.
But Mr Dutse said that the proposed strike later this December would be total and indefinite. This further emphasises the resolution of the 93rd National Executive Council meeting reached at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos last week.
“Government has failed to implement and fulfil agreements it reached with the union as contained in the memorandum of understanding signed,” he said.
