The Academics Staff Union of Polytechnics has announced an indefinite strike action.

This industrial action is coming less than a week after resident doctors in the country embarked on a warning strike as a result of Non-payment of salaries and other allowances by the government.

Announcing this, the union made this known through it President, Anderson Ezeibe, at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday. He noted that this becomes necessary following the failure of the government to address the sorry state of polytechnics and monotechnics and the expiration of the ultimatum issued since March 2020.

In his statement, he noted that the union communicated it demand to state governors as well as the ministries of labour and education but unfortunately nothing was done to ameliorate the situations.

He further stated, “Our grievances also include the non-reconstitution of governing councils in federal polytechnics and many state-owned institutions leading to the disruption of governance and administrative processes in the institutions since May, 2020.

“This has also undermined the renegotiation of the union’s 2010 agreement with the government which was unilaterally suspended by the government for over two years now.”
