Earned Allowance, Revitalisation Fund, Payment Of Withheld Salaries Not Negotiable – ASUU Insists As Strike Linger
The Academic Staff Union of Universities states that Earned Allowance, and other financial agreements are not negotiable.
The union speaking speaking with the newsmen confirmed that the union has resumed talk with the Briggs committee, set up by the federal ministry of education to look in to the union’s demand.
According to report gathered, Prof. Nimi Briggs Committee and the academic union met on Saturday 4th of June, 2022, as the deadline given the Briggs Committee to conclude its assignment would lapse mid week.
He said: “Demands that have financial implications such as the payment of Earned Academic Allowance, Revitalisation Fund, the payment of withheld salaries are not negotiable…..”
“Our children and wards are affected too by the strike. How much do we earn to send them abroad or to private universities here?
“We are not insensitive to the welfare of our students and the anxiety of parents. It is the government that is not getting its priorities right. Education is a vital sector that should not be left to rot,”he said.
When ASUU President was contacted, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said the two parties had been meeting as scheduled quietly.
According to him “All I can say is that we are meeting and we are discussing and progress is being made. Whatever we arrive at we will make public. Whether their team has a time limit to do its job does not concern us. As a union, we are always ready to negotiate whenever they are ready too,” he said.
