Asuu Strike: FG appeals to the union to off strike and return to negotiation

The Federal Government has appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off its ongoing strike in the interest of Nigerians.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, made the appeal on Tuesday, August 15, in a statement.

ASUU commenced an indefinite strike on Monday over alleged FG’s breach of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the 2009 FG/ASUU Agreement on financing of state universities; breach of the conditions of service; refusing to honour the Earned Academic Allowance (EAA) and re-negotiation of the agreement.

But Ngige blamed ASUU for not following due process before commencing on the indefinite strike.

He said the Union was supposed to give the Federal Government the mandatory 15 days’ notice as contained in Section 41 of Trade Disputes Act, Cap T8, 2004.

“In fact, it was on Monday, August 14, 2017, that the office of the minister received a letter dated August 13, 2017, from ASUU, that is, one full day after it commenced the strike,” the Minister said.

He said ASUU’s letter was to inform the Federal Government that it had started a strike instead of a declaration of intention to go on a strike as contained in the Trade Dispute Act, 2004.

“The Federal Government, therefore, wishes to appeal to ASUU to consider the students who are currently writing degree and promotion examinations, to call off the strike and return to the negotiation table.

The Ministry of Labour and Employment will ensure that a time-frame will be tied to the negotiation this time around,” the minister said.

He added that the action was against the spirit of social dialogue and Collective Bargaining Agreement for ASUU to embark on a strike despite an ongoing negotiation.

Everything published made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean Asuu Strike: FG appeals to the union to off strike and return to negotiation – JosToTheWorld is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got… Read more »

Greetings, I do believe your blog could possibly
be having internet browser compatibility problems. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide
you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, great site!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of
it!
