#AsuuStrike : ASUU, FG To Resume Talks On Monday - (Details)

asuu strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and the Federal Government are to resume talks Monday (tomorrow) on how to resolve the impasse over the two-month-old strike embarked upon by lecturers.

National President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, confirmed the development in a telephone interview with newsmen in Abuja, on Friday.

He, however, said the union was not optimistic about the prospects of an early resolution of the industrial dispute.

In response to a question on whether there had been any fresh development with regard to the resolution of the dispute, Ogunyemi said ”nothing new”. The ASUU President said the union is tired of government’s failed promises.

He further explained that in order to forestall a situation where ASUU and the government would restart negotiations on arrears of earned academic allowances, both sides had agreed that “it would be mainstreamed into the 2019 budget.” Members of ASUU went on strike on November 4, 2018, to demand for improved funding of universities and implementation of previous agreements with the government.
The union is also seeking the implementation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreements, Memorandum of Understanding (MoU; 2012 and 2013) and Memorandum of Action (MoA, 2017), among others.
