The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko Chapter has resolved to embark on an indefinite strike starting from today.
In a congress resolution report sent to all members by the Chairperson Dr Sola Fayose informing them of the approval by the national on its request to allow members withdraw their services following three months of outstanding salaries and non remittance of deductions for seven months
See full statement below :
Non Payment of Salaries/Deductions and Withdrawal of Service.
Following past engagements on the issues of salary and deduction payments, particularly the resolutions of the Congress meeting of 15th June, 2016, conveying the displeasure of our members on the issues of salary and deduction payments, the Congress of ASUU-AAUA met today, 4th July, 2016, to get feedbacks on the consultations the branch initiated with the national on its request to allow members withdraw their services following three months outstanding salaries and non-remittance of deductions for seven months.
Congress was informed of the approval of national to allow members of ASUU-AAUA withdraw their services until all outstanding salaries (3 months) and deductions (7 months) are FULLY paid. ALL MEMBERS ARE, THEREFORE, DIRECTED TO WITHDRAW THEIR SERVICES WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT. This withdrawal affects all formal engagements/activities.
Having waited in vain these past months to see a positive turning around, we are left with no other choice than this last resort, as our members have been systematically, financially, psychologically and morally disempowered.
It is hoped that these issues would be resolved soon to allow us effectively resume the performance of our services to the University.
Yours in the struggle,
Dr. Sola Fayose
For and on behalf of ASUU-AAUA
