ASUU declares a week warning strike  

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan chapter has embarked on a one-week warning strike

The strike is to protest illegal pension deductions and unpaid allowances

The strike which commenced on Tuesday, April 4, will end on Tuesday April 11

Things are about to get rocky in the University of Ibadan (UI) as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) chapter of the institution has declared a one-week warning strike.

What is the problem? ASUU says there have been illegal pension deductions, fractional salary payments and non-payment of supervision allowance. Deji Omole, the ASUU chairman in UI presided over the congress that took the decision on Tuesday April, 4, 2017.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) union members also complained of the excessive deductions in their March salaries.

And while all these is going on, they also want the management of the university to declare the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) profile of the university, which it has failed to do.

Mr. Omole said: “The congress of ASUU, UNIBADAN, at its meeting of 4th April, 2017, having received permission from the national body of the union, hereby, declare a one-week warning strike.

“The warning strike will commence from 12:01 midnight of Tuesday, 4th April, to 12:00 midnight of Tuesday, 11th April, 2017.

“The congress of the union maintains that the failure of the university administration to satisfactorily resolve all the issues, will force the union to proceed on a comprehensive and total strike.”

Mr. Omole is not speaking up for the first time. On Sunday, March 19, he criticized the Buhari government, pointing out that the state of the economy was contributing to the growing tensions in the country.
