ASUP Calls Off Strike, Asks Workers to Resume Work On Monday

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has made an announcement declaring a wrap to its two-week warning strike which started on the 16th of May. According to the union, this choice was made based totally on the inroads that had been made so far in their negotiations with the Federal Government. They defined that the authorities had indeed met some demands, and the process is still on to fix the others. 

In a statement by the Secretary-General of ASUP, Shamma Kpanja, the union explained that they chose to suspend the strike at a stage in an emergency council meeting of the union. They said that they had satisfied with the tremendous growth the two-week warning strike had delivered towards the resolution of 4 of the union’s demands from the federal government. 

They included the commencement of payment of arrears of the new minimum wage in all affected federal polytechnics and the approval and launch of regulatory equipment for accreditation of institutions, management, and some programs, as well as the provision of appropriate insurance policies meant to tackle the challenges being confronted in the state-owned institutions.
