The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may have embarked on indefinite strike from today, Monday, August 14, 2017.
Several branches of ASUU have voted overwhelmingly for members in both federal and state universities to embark on an indefinite strike to press home for the implementation of their demands.
ASUU branches nationwide on Friday held a referendum in line with an earlier directive by the National Executive Council (NEC) to vote whether the strike will be indefinite strike, one month strike, one week warning and no strike.
Issues in contention include, federal government breach of the 2009 FG/ASUU Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed agreement on grants to state universities, conditions of service, non implementation of Earned Academic Allowance (EAA) and re -negotiation of the agreement.
Other outstanding issues are non provision of revitalization funds to public universities and non release of NUPEMCO operational licence.
