The second round of the eight-week warning strike embarked upon by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, ends today while they extended the ongoing strike by three months after the initial warning strike expired.
ASUU president Prof Emmanuel Osodeke disclosed the union’s decision today. According to reports, the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the union had earlier given the go ahead to the national leadership to call out members on indefinite strike, if nothing tangible was achieved during the eight weeks of their warning strike.
The union had earlier gone on a month warning strike on February 14 this year, and extended it by another eight weeks, which comes to an end today.
Meanwhile, The Academic Staff Union of Universities, on Sunday, said it did not receive any notice of meeting from the Ministry of Labour and Employment over its ongoing strike.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, had during a meeting with the striking National Association of Academic Technologists on Friday, promised to meet with ASUU this week.
