Strike: ASUP issues 3-week ultimatum

Comrade Usman Dutse, ASUP President

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has given the federal government a three-week ultimatum, effective from March 27, 2017 to address the shortfalls in the personnel and other payments owed its members or face industrial action.

President of the union, Comrade Usman Dutse, who disclosed this to journalists, said the decision was based on the outcome of the union`s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held at the Plateau State Polytechnic, Barkin Ladi, and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct governors to pay salaries owed its members without delay.

Comrade Dutse said Abia, Edo, Kogi, Benue, Ondo, Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Imo and Zamfara States had not paid salaries and promotion arrears of polytechnic workers, despite bailout funds as well as the  Paris Club refunds at their disposal.
