Members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) have threatened to embark on another round of industrial action if the federal government refuses to honour the agreement it reached with the union since 2012.

Speaking at a capacity building workshop for members of the union, the ASUP President, Usman Yusuf Dutse, lamented that several agreements reached between the union and the federal government were yet to be implemented.

He said the agreements include non-implementation of CONTISS, poor state of polytechnics, under-funding of the sector, dichotomy between HND and bachelors’ degree holders and non-implementation of NEEDS assessment report on polytechnics, among others.

The union leader noted that having given the present administration more than one year to settle down and address their demands, it seemed the government was not serious in addressing the matter.
