BREAKING: Polytechnic union, ASUP suspends two-month-old strike


The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), on Tuesday, suspended the industrial action it started in December 12th, 2018.

ASUP President, Usman Dutse announced the strike suspension at a press briefing in Abuja.

Dutse said that within the life span of the strike, several meetings were held between the union and government’s representatives concerning non-implementation of the 2017 Memorandum of Settlement/Action signed with the government after the November 2017 strike.

He said that the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union, after exhaustive deliberations and due consultations with the respective congress across the nation “resolved to suspend the industrial action on the conditions that government commits to a reviewed memorandum of Action to solidify the resolutions and ensure its full implementation, failing which the union shall resume the action at its discretion.”

Some of the issues, according to him, included salary shortfalls, promotion arrears and payment allowances, NEEDS Assessment, victimization of union officers, the passage of the amendment bill of the polytechnics among others.
