The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has declared that it would begin a two-week warning strike with effect from Monday, May 16.
This position was contained in a statement signed by the union’s president, Anderson Ezeibe, and dated May 11, 2022.
The statement noted that the decision was taken at its 102nd emergency national executive council meeting held in Abuja on Wednesday.
The union said the decision became imperative following the failure of the government to implement the Memorandum of Action (MoA) signed in June 2021, which informed the suspension of its two-month strike at the time.
ASUP said it also gave a one-month ultimatum in April to address its needs but said the government ignored its threat and went on with political activities as if everything was normal.
