BREAKING: ASUP EMBARKS ON INDEFINITE STRIKE NATIONWIDE
The Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnics, ASUP has embarked on a nationwide industrial action. The National President of the Union, Anderson Eziebe disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.
This is coming despite the Federal Government's invitation of the leadership of the Union on Monday to a meeting Scheduled to hold earlier today Tuesday 6th of April by 11:00AM in a move to avert the planned strike.
According to Eziebe, the Union members reached a unanimous position to shut down all the nation's Polytechnics and Monotechnics effective from 12:00AM 6th of April, 2021 and that this would continue as long as the Federal Government refused to meet their demands.
The Union has been at a loggerhead with the Federal Government over what they described as the Government's failure to honour the various agreements entered into with the Union.
