Strike: Again, FG, ASUU Fail To Reach Agreement As Govt Makes New Proposal

The Federal Government and the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU did not reach an agreement over the ongoing two-week warning strike embarked on by the union.

The meeting, which lasted till late night, was the second as the two parties seek to resolve issues raised by ASUU.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, stated that the Federal Government had tabled a new proposal regarding the impasse over the Integrated Payroll Personal Information System IPPIS enrollment for members of the union.

Ngige said that the issues under consideration ranged from funding, revitalization of public universities, earned academic allowances to salaries shortfalls.

The two-week warning strike, which the union declared, will elapse on Monday next week.

ASUU declared the strike mainly to protest the non-payment of salaries of their members who failed to enroll into the federal government’s IPPIS.
