ASUU provides strike update as FG settles minimum wage arrears

Despite the Federal Government’s settlement of minimum wage arrears, the Academic Staff Union of Universities has stated that its members will not return to work.

This was stated in a circular sent by the union’s University of Lagos section, headlined “Payment of Minimum Wage Arrears.”

On Saturday, Dele Ashiru, the chairman of UNILAG ASUU, confirmed the circular’s veracity.

The arrears payment is “far overdue,” according to Ashiru, who also claims that ASUU’s key demands have not been addressed.

“Our Branch leadership has been bombarded with calls concerning the recent payment of the long-overdue arrears of the consequential adjustment of the minimum wage,” the circular stated.

“Our members are reminded that this is not one of the fundamental demands underpinning the current strike action.

“For the avoidance of doubt, our Union’s demands include the completion of the renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement, the abolition of the fraudulent and corrupt IPPIS scheme and the deployment of UTAS, payment of promotion arrears, the proliferation of State Universities, and governance issues.”

“While our Union appreciates this unexpected donation, our members should save the monies and spend carefully so that we can continue to fight until all of our requests are realized.”

Our Union applauds our members’ determination and sacrifice in establishing an internationally competitive university system.
