ASUU: Union drops update following payment of minimum wage arrears (News)

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), have cleared the air, making it known to Nigerians that regardless of the recent payment of their long over due minimum wage arrears by the federal government, the strike still continues.

ASUU clarified this in a circular released on Saturday, titled:
“Payment of minimum wage arrears”

And it reads thus, “The leadership of our Branch has been inundated with calls concerning the recent payment of the long-overdue arrears of the consequential adjustment of the minimum wage.

“Our members are reminded that this is not one of the core demands upon which the ongoing strike action is premised.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the demands of our Union are the conclusion of the renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement, abrogation of the fraudulent and corrupt IPPIS scheme and the deployment of UTAS, payment of promotion arrears, the proliferation of State Universities and governance issues amongst others.

“While our Union welcomes this unsolicited payment, our members should please conserve the funds and spend wisely to energise our struggle until all our demands are satisfactorily met
Our Union commends the resolve and sacrifice of our members in enthroning a globally competitive University system.

“United we bargain! Divided we beg! A people united can never be defeated. Solidarity forever”

The circular was confirmed by Dele Ashiru, chairman of ASUU in the university of Lagos State, who further stressed that the payment of minimum wage arrears, is not the union’s core imposition.
