THE Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, ended its National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting late Monday (yesterday), with a resolution not to embark on another strike action over the payment of half salaries to members by the Federal Government.
However, the union resolved to wait for the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila’s intervention in its face-off with the government over the 2009 agreement.
Meanwhile, sequal to the announcement by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila that the Federal Government would only pay half salaries and not for the 8 months the lecturers were on strike, sources within ASUU are of the opinion that ASUU would proceed on an indefinite strike if the Speaker’s response were to unsatisfactory.
