The Federal Government (FG) had said it will continue negotiation with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) today to resolve the ongoing industrial action declared by the union.
The Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige made this known yesterday in a statement issued by the Director of Press in the Ministry, Mr. Samuel Olowookere.
The meeting is part of efforts at resolving the ongoing strike embarked upon by ASUU, the Minister stated.
“The Minister of Labor and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige is scheduled to hold a meeting with the Executive of ASUU. The conciliatory meeting is scheduled to hold on January 7, at the Minister’s Conference Room by 3:30 pm prompt,” the statement reads.
ASUU commenced an indefinite strike on the 5th of November, 2018 over demands based on agreement reached with the government in 2018. Non-payment of earned allowances, funding of revitalization of the public universities, poor funding of the universities are some of the demands by ASUU.
