ASUU Receives November Salary; Arrears Withheld

The members of the Academic Staff Union of Union have received their November Salaries from the Federal Government. 

This came not as a shock but a reminder of the tussle between the ASUU and the federal government. 

Recall that members of the varsity lecturers went on strike on February 14 and ended the strike on October 14. The FG only paid them half salaries in October because they started working on October 14. 

The members of ASUU were upset with the obstinacy of the federal government on its no-work no-pay policy. According to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, the varsity lecturers were paid via pro-rata. 

However, speaking to the news men, a lecturer said, “We were only paid for the days after the strike. I received half of my salary. Other members are angry right now, they are blaming the NEC for calling off the strike.” 

Nonetheless, the good news in the country’s educational system is that the varsity lecturers under the aegis of ASUU have received their November salaries, but the eight month backlog salaries are still withheld.
