In this Nigerian state, ASUU declares an indefinite strike

Posted by

The action came after Taraba state branch received approval from the ASUU national to begin the strike action to enforce its demands and after the state government refuted claims that it owes workers’ salaries.

The Taraba State University chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has declared a comprehensive and ongoing strike action.

The action came after the ASUU national gave the state branch permission to go on strike in order to press its demands, and after the state government refuted claims that it owes its employees’ salaries.

According to the Union, the government’s failure to pay earned academic allowances, promotion arrears, staff members’ fractional salaries, and an unresolved staff pension and gratuity scheme are the main causes of the strike action.

The institution’s failure to implement agreements and the installation of perimeter fencing, according to Mr. Samuel Shitaa, the Taraba State University ASUU Chairman, are additional causes for the industrial action.

In a press release on Friday, Bala Dan-Abu, the governor’s special adviser on media and publicity, responded to ASUU’s action by claiming that the departing governor owed no worker salaries.
