"If our members are not paid, we will automatically begin the strike" - ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has directed its members nationwide to go on strike as soon as the Federal Government stops lecturers’ salaries. Expect the unexpected. This was announced via their social media handle on twitter on 27th January. 

The union added that it was consulting with its members nationwide on the directive by the Federal Government stopping the payment of salaries to lecturers and all workers of tertiary institutions who are not enrolled on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.

Meanwhile, ASUU has accused unnamed government officials of sabotaging its discussions with the Federal Government on the proposed University Transparency and Accountability Solution.

Immediately salaries are  paid and we discovered that other members of staff are paid and our  members are not paid, we will automatically begin the strike.”

The decision of NEC is that, immediately our salaries are stopped we will invoke the principle of no pay no work. “We don’t need to wait for any directive from NEC and an injury to one is an injury to all.
