The Joint Action Committee (JAC) comprising of SSANU, NASU and NAAT at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso have said they are not moved by the school management sudden announcement of resumption of activities, Mouthpiece NGR reports.
Speaking with our correspondent on Thursday, the Chairman of SSANU, Mr Obama disclosed that its union at the National level has just extended the ongoing strike with another one month after a meeting today at Abuja.
Obama noted that JAC members who have also been active on campus during the strike will also be withdrawn.
According to him, it has been resolved that the ongoing strike can only be considered to be suspended after the FGN/SSANU 2009 Agreement is renegotiated and a new salary structure for the university staff is approved.
Mouthpiece NGR understands that his reaction is coming following announcement of resumption of activities by school management through the students’ mail.
The statement made available to Mouthpiece NGR earlier today was signed by the school registrar, Kayode Ogunleye.
It reads in part “Upon the directive of the Visitor to the University, the Management thereby informs all staff and students that the university will continue its academic activities for the first semester of the 2021/2022 Academic Session on Thursday May 26, 2022.”
Meanwhile efforts to speak with the Chairman of ASUU proved abortive. But a staff who pleaded on condition of anonymity said the sudden announcement of resumption by the management will only generate tension, adding that no union members will resume activities.
He said resumption is always done after senate meeting and in proper ways.
“The unions after a meeting with the Commissioner for Education yesterday are yet to meet or make congressional decision.”
