BREAKING: ASUU joins organized labour’s nationwide strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has joined the ongoing strike embarked up from Monday, by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC.

Organized labour have begun the industrial action, after the federal government’s failure to meet the unions’ minimum wage demand.

In a statement addressed to the branch chairpersons and zonal coordinators of ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, has directed lecturers in universities across the country to join the strike as an affiliate of the congress.

“The NLC has declared an indefinite strike action beginning from Monday, June 3, 2024, as a result of the failure of the government to conclude the renegotiation of minimum wage for Nigerian workers and reversal of hike in electricity tariff.

“Our branches are hereby enjoined to join in the strike action as an affiliate member of Congress.

“Consequently, branch chairpersons are to mobilise all members to participate in the strike action. Yours in the struggle,” it read.
