Has ASSU called of the strike? Till WHEN
The ASSU Strike has not been called off but read below to see the reason why the university teachers has decided to go on strike.
Will ASSU Strike disturb new student?
I observed that majority of the newly admitted student of various university has been waiting for the ASSU strike to be called of before they can start coming to school to study, many has said that ASSU strike will not affect the academic calendar of the state university of Nigeria
I have noticed that many university in Nigeria are on ASSU strike due to some inconveniences . but the information reaching us here stated that the Federal Government and the Academic Union Staff (ASSU) Have Agreed to resume talks next week to resolve the ongoing strike by the university teachers.
Dr chris Ngige, the minister labor and employment, told news men at the end of a closed door meeting with union in Abuja on Thursday that the talks had been fruitful.
The meeting was called at the instance of the minister.
“we will resume discussion by next week”, Ngige said.
Prof. Biodun ogunyemi, ASSU president, also confirmed that the meeting would continue next week . “We have really started the discussion, we have really not gone too far, so what we have done today was to open the issues. By tomorrow we should meet and decide when we reschedule the meeting.
This means that the strike will continue, said Ogunyemi.
The lecturers resumed strike on November 5th over demand to improve funding of public university based on agreement reached with the federal Government in 2019.
Some of the demands by the union are that the federal Government should nominate another chairman of the government renegotiating team of the 2009 ASUU/ Federal Government agreement to replace Dr Wale Babalakin.
Other issues bothering union are non-payment of earned allowances, funding and revitalization of the Nigeria Universities implementation of needs assessment report, poor funding of the state university, among others. Those present at Thursday’s meeting ministry of education, Mr sonny Echonu, and Dr Isa Gagge, Former ASSU president.
Hope my information was helpful.
