None of the issues has been addressed and the Governing Council that promised to get back to us after their meeting with the Union but up till now we haven’t gotten any response from them.
In the light of the above, our strike is still in full force. The national body of our Union is fully briefed on the state of Things in LAUTECH and is on the same page with us. Let us remain resolute, we shall overcome.
Dare to struggle, dare to win.
Speaking with the ASUU chairman Lautech Chapter, Dr Biodun Olaniran, he said “We are not concerned with the reopening of the varsity but as a union we are still on strike. In the Congress we had yesterday we all came to a conclusion that we would not resume any work because our needs are not addressed”.
“Our demands are; Earned academic allowances, Pension and gratuity, national health insurance, conditions of service, promotion arrears, budget monitoring committee, payment of salaries and arrears”, he said
It should be recalled that the institution has been reopened after so many month due to lack of poor funding of the lecturers since December 2013.
