ASUU STRIKE: Outcome Of Yesterday’s FG and ASUU Meeting (Read Below)

The Academi Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has rejected Federal Government’s offer to suspend strike conditionally.

Although ASUU President refused to talk to journalists on the details of the meeting, one of the union members said that there was nothing new except that the government team wanted them to call off the strike for short period of time which they disagreed.

But Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment Senator spoke to journalists after the meeting claimed the negotiations were fruitful.

In his statement, he said;

“We have reached some agreements and we hope that by next week, those agreements will be maturing and the different unions will have something to tell their members, so that they can call off the strike.”

“We have put some timelines for some aspects like renegotiation of 2009 agreement in terms of condition of service and wage review. So, we are hopeful that by next weekend, the unions will see a conclusion of that area.”
