Checkout List of ASUU Demands as Strike is Suspended Conditionally


This is a summary of the conditions given to the Federal Government to prevent a resumption of the ASUU strike which lasted for over a month. 
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) suspended its five-week long strike on Monday.

 
This was after ASUU President Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi told reporters Monday night that they decided to conditionally suspend the strike in view of the timeline of October for the implementation of the signed agreement with the government.  
 
The meeting was a long one with the Federal Government delegation, led by Minister of Labour and Employment Dr. Chris Ngige.
 
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi assured the public that the union would not hesitate to resume the suspended action should the government renege on the newly signed agreement, which he called Memorandum of Action.
 
Here are the five demands requested by the Association:

Areas of agreement include funding for revitalization of public universities and the issue of Earned Academic Allowances;
 
The issue of University Staff Schools;
 
The implementation of the judgment of the National Industrial Court, National Universities Pension Management Company and guidelines for pension matters for professors;
 
The exemption offered by the government regarding the issue of TSA, which included the issue of grants, endowment funds as well as salary shortfall, which is already being implemented by the government;
 
The union also promised to submit a position paper to the Federal Government on their observation with a view for government to advise state governments.
