Just In: ASUP Suspends Two-Month-Old Strike
Just In: ASUP Suspends Two-Month-Old Strike: The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP has suspended the two-month-old strike it embarked upon since last year’s December. ASUP embarked on strike over the failure of the federal government to implement the agreements it reached with her in 2017.
ASUP reached an agreement with FG to implement the recommendations of the 2014 NEEDS assessment which recommended the increase of funding to the polytechnics.
Announcing the suspension of the strike on Tuesday during a press briefing in Abuja, ASUP President, Usman Dutse, said that “they 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.”
