No-Work-No-Pay : FG to pay ASUU Installmentally, Strike To End Friday

The National Executive Council, NEC, meeting of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is expected to hold tomorrow, during which the union will deliberate on recent developments in the face-off between it and the federal government.

Sources told YOMSDIRECT that the NEC meeting would be preceded by congresses in its branches nationwide today.

In line with its tradition, the NEC meeting would start late on Thursday and the decision made public early Friday morning when the ongoing strike is expected to be called off.

Incidentally, that day would mark the eighth month the industrial action started.

The developments , it was gathered, are as a result of the intervention of speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, in the matter after the Court of Appeal last Friday gave the union seven days to comply with the ruling of the National Industrial Court in Abuja, that it should call off  the action before further entertainment of the matter between it and the FG would continue.

Also, the issue of the withheld salaries was resolved, with the government promising to pay in tranches.

The lecturers have not been paid since March like the non-teaching staff who resumed duties about two months ago.

With this development, Governing Councils of affected universities are expected to call for the reopening of the schools from next week.
