Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics begin Indefinite strike

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) on Wednesday began an indefinite strike over non-implementation of the 2009 and 2017 agreement reached with the union by the federal government.

The polytechnic lecturers now join their university colleagues who have been on strike since November 4. The National President of ASUP, Usman Dutse, said the federal government had invited the union for dialogue on December 17 but the strike would continue till then.

Prior to the strike, the union had on October 2 issued a 21-day ultimatum to the government before it extended it to November. But even then, it did not commence the strike. Dutse said the strike had commenced, adding that there is total compliance by all chapters.

“We have zonal coordinators and a monitoring team, zone by zone, all over the country. Already from the report we are getting, we are satisfied with the level of compliance from all our zones but we are reviewing the day’s activity in a meeting now,” he said.
Dutse said the government has failed to implement and fulfill agreements it reached with the union as contained in the memorandum of understanding signed. The union went on strike over non-implementation of the NEEDS Assessment report of 2014, non-payment of salaries in state-owned institutions, non-payment of allowances, and the victimisation of union members, among others.

ASUP went on strike in November 2017, but when the federal government reached an agreement to implement the recommendations of the 2014 NEEDS assessment, the strike was suspended 15 days after. The agreement particularly highlighted the need for increased funding of polytechnics.

ASUP set to commence strike Wednesday despite government’s invitation


The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) on Tuesday said there was no going back on its planned indefinite strike beginning on December 12 in all the nation’s polytechnics.
Usman Dutse, the National President of the union, made the declaration in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Mr Dutse said the strike became necessary following the failure of the federal government to implement the 2009 and 2017 agreements reached with the union.
According to him, we are commencing our strike tomorrow as scheduled. Everything is set and there is no going back.
“There is an invitation for a meeting on December 17, but we will still commence our strike on Wednesday.
“I don’t know what will happen at the meeting or what they have decided, but until we meet with them, we cannot predict.
”I don’t know what they plan to present until we meet with them,” he said.
Mr Duste said the strike would be comprehensive and total, until all issues raised were adequately addressed by the government.
He said the union had issued a notice directing all members nationwide to comply and down tools by midnight of December 12.
The president said the union leaders would also send a reminder to all its branches, adding that there would be no academic activities in all the polytechnics until further notice.
Mr Dutse said the failure of the federal government and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, to comply with the agreements reached with the union necessitated the strike.
He said the union had in 2009 signed an agreement with the government and also a Memorandum of Action in 2017, adding that none of the agreements had been implemented.
Speaking on the resolution reached at the union’s 93rd National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Yaba College of Technology, Lagos State on November 29, Mr Dutse said the strike was inevitable.
He said the union had issued a notice directing all members nationwide to comply and down tools by midnight of Tuesday, December 12.
He said the union would also send a reminder to its branches on Wednesday.
He listed the 10 point demands of the union to include non-implementation of Need Assessment reports of 2014 as agreed with the minister at the meeting of October 2017.
“They are lack of seriousness in the renegotiation in the union’s 2010 agreement; non-release of arrears of CONTISS 15 migration for the lower cadre; non-release of arrears of promotions and shortfalls in personnel releases as well as non-payment of allowances.
“Other agitations are non-payment of salaries in many state-owned polytechnics, non-payment of union check off dues, pension deductions and other statutory deductions from staff salaries to the appropriate bodies, continue victimisation of union officers,” he said.
