As the back and forth between the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and its employer, the federal government continues to linger, the president of the union, Professor Victor Osodeke has stated the reasons why FG can’t implement ‘No-Work, No-Pay’ policy against its members.
Osodeke stated this during a television show, politics today on Channels TV yesterday, Tuesday night.
He claimed that, the government purposely delayed the issues raised by the union since February when the roll-over strike was declared on February 14th to have its aways against the union’s industrial action which is now over six months.
He further stated that, an average university spends 17 weeks for a semester, invariably a session will be 34-week adding that the remaining weeks in a year should be spent on vacation and researching including community services as contained in their letter of employment.
He added that, the weeks left in the year meant for other statutory activities won’t be used as a result of the time wasted by the student, that the members of the union won’t have other options than to forfeit the time meant for other activities to make up the precious time wasted in the course of the disagreement between the two parties.
