FG calls emergency meeting over ASUP strike

FG calls emergency meeting as ASUP threatens strike.

The federal government has convened an emergency meeting with the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) to prevent the union from downing tools. The emergency meeting scheduled for April 6 (today) will be held at the education ministry headquarters in Abuja.

The emergency meeting scheduled for April 6 (today) will be held at the education ministry headquarters in Abuja.

The ministry’s spokesman, Ben Bem Goong, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

Adamu Adamu, the education minister, will meet with ASUP members following a strike notice over the federal government’s failure to implement agreements reached with the union.

The looming strike came barely four months after the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) called off a nine-month-old strike over demands for improved remuneration and working conditions.

The National Association of Resident Doctors is currently on strike as President Muhammadu Buhari vacations in a UK hospital.

Meanwhile, civil servants in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, are set for a face-off with the Buhari regime as various federal civil service unions planned to go on strike.

The unions, Joint Unions Action Committee (JUAC) in the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) and Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), said they were going on strike over the non-implementation of the FCT Civil Service Commission Act.
