ASUU exco meets, lecturers discusses sit-at-home over Half-salary

The National Executive Council of the Academic Staff Union of Universities is set to meet in Abuja on Monday, according to reports.

The meeting wis scheduled to hold at the union’s headquarters at the University of Abuja.

Leaders of the union, who spoke on Sunday, said the lecturers would decide whether or not to resume strike following the payment of half salary by the Federal government.

When asked about the options available, the leaders said, “We can decide to stay at home, we can decide to seize results, or we can decide to cancel the session since the government won’t pay the withheld salary and we can’t work for months that we weren’t paid for.”

Meanwhile, renowned human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), who is the lead counsel to ASUU, in a statement on Sunday, explained why the ‘no work, no pay’ policy could not be applicable to ASUU.

In parts, Falana said, “According to the Ministry of Labour and Employment, the lecturers were paid in pro rata to the number of days that they worked in October, counting from the day that they suspended their industrial action.

Furthermore, he said that the position of the Federal Government is factually faulty and legally misleading.
