JUST IN: ASUU to Announce Final Decision on Strike Action by 9am

;

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will announce a decision on whether to embark on fresh industrial action at 9am on Monday (today).


The PUNCH reports that majority of the lecturers have agreed on strike.

Members of the union’s National Executive Council held marathon meetings since Saturday at the University of Lagos.

They will address a press conference at 9 am to announce the resolutions of the two-day meeting titled, ‘NEC for NEC.’

ASUU had sensitised and mobilised lecturers and students across all universities on the reason the union might likely go on strike.

Warning strike inevitable

A chairman of one of the branches, who preferred anonymity because he’s not in a position to speak, said the least consideration so far is a warning strike.

He explained that “ASUU is being considerate but the actions of the Federal Government are not helpful”.

“The least consideration, for now, is a warning strike. Some of our branch representatives feel we should commence strike outrightly but others advised that apart from the lecture free-day declared, we should embark on another warning strike before the full, indefinite strike.”
