ASUU Embarks on A 2 Weeks Warning Strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commenced a 2- week warning strike with effect from Monday. 9th March 2020 as a way of compelling the federal government to implement the agreements and resolutions of Memorandum of Action discussed in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoU), all of which have not been implemented.
This was made know by the National President of ASUU Professor Biodun Ogunyemi at the end of the National Executive Council meeting(NEC) held at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT).
It was also gathered that the warning strike is equally connected to the decision of the federal government to stop salaries of lecturers who have not enrolled in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
