Strike: ASUU Moves To Compile List Of Errant Lecturers, Threatens Sanctions (Updated: 2 months ago)


The PUNCH reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it would compile a list of errant lecturers who have continued to attend to the academic needs of students despite the ongoing industrial action by the union.

The union also threatened to sanction the lecturers found culpable.

The National President of the union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja.

Saturday PUNCH reports that ASUU had on Monday, February 14, 2022 announced a four-week total and comprehensive warning strike following the inability of the union and the Federal Government to reach a common ground on the demands of university lecturers.

Some of ASUU’s demands include the release of revitalization funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers.

Following the expiration of the initial four weeks of the warning strike, the union had gone ahead to declare another eight weeks saying that it was giving the government more time to attend to its needs.

But findings by our correspondents had revealed that some lecturers in some federal universities were attending to students despite the declaration of the industrial action.

In an interview with our correspondent, Osodeke noted that the union was aware of some erring lecturers and that the union would sanction them.

“We are aware that some lecturers are attending to students despite the fact that the national body declared a strike. In a union where you have over 15,000 members, it is only normal that you will have some members who will go against the laid down rules.

“We are taking note of the said lecturers. We are compiling our list and they will be sanctioned at the end of the strike,” he said.
