The Federal Government on Wednesday in Abuja communicated the expectation that the one-month cautioning strike left upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on February 14, would before long be finished.
ASUU called its individuals out on the advance notice strike to urge the Federal Government to address their requests, some of which had been waiting beginning around 2009.
Priest of Labor and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, communicated the desire for truncation of the advance notice hit when he talked with newsmen toward the finish of an assuagement meeting between the public authority and the association.
Ngige said the gathering settled on many issues and a timetable was booked for the execution of the arrangements.
As indicated by him, ASUU authorities consented to get back to their individuals with offers made by the public authority and return to him before the week runs out.
He noticed that large numbers of the things in the 2020 Memorandum of Action (MOA) had been managed thoroughly, while some were being tended to.
“We have just a couple of regions that are new. One of the new regions is the renegotiation of the Conditions of Service, which is known as the ‘2009 Agreement’.
“An arrangement was reached in 2009 that their Conditions of Service would be surveyed at regular intervals. It was done in 2014.
“We began one in which the previous UNILAG Pro-Chancellor, Wale Babalakin (SAN), was leading the advisory group.
“After Babalakin, Prof. Manzali was in control and the board thought of a draft report, proposed by the Federal Ministry of Education and ASUU.
“Today, Manzali’s board has become dead in light of the fact that a significant number individuals in the advisory group are at this point not supportive of chancellors,” the priest clarified.
Ngige said that another group had been established to require another once-over at that record.
“This is to ensure that a portion of the remittances are not against the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC) fixed rates for wages and stipends.
“On the off chance that you propose remittances that don’t conform to NSIWC rates, the public authority can not acknowledge it.
“Along these lines, they really should make the best choice from the start so anything that the advisory group presents can be endorsed by the Federal Executive Council,” he said.
