Why we joined Labour’s nationwide strike – ASUU  | Read more 

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has joined the strike embarked on Monday by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC over minimum wage.

 

ASUU president, Mr Emmanuel Osodeke in a statement addressed to the branch chairpersons and zonal coordinators of the union, directed lecturers in universities across the country to join the strike.

 

“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,” the statement read.
