Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics
(ASUP) are to continue the ongoing
nationwide strike, as the Monday
meeting between polytechnic lecturers
and the Federal Government ended in a stalemate.
It will be recalled that the ASUP embarked on strike from April 29, July 17, 2013 in the first instance, and resumed the industrial action in early October, 2013. The lecturers demand better working conditions, infrastructure improvement, and ending the discrimination of polytechnic graduates, among other things.
The National Publicity Secretary of ASUP, Clement Chirman, confirmed the deadlock, adding that the Federal Government’s
delegation was led to the Abuja meeting by the Minister of Labour, Chukwuemeka Wogu.
