The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan Chapter today declared one-week warning strike over Illegal Pension Deductions, Fractional salary payments and non-payment of supervision allowance.
The management of the University of Ibadan under the Vice Chancellorship of Professor Idowu Olayinka has been accused of failure to declare the Internally Generated Revenue profile of the University.
This decision was taken on Tuesday at the ASUU Congress held at the Faculty of Arts presided over by its Chairman, Dr Deji Omole where members complained over excessive deductions in March salaries.
It should be recalled that a resolution was issued about a month ago stating grievance of ASUU Members UI Chapter over but not limited to immediate reversal of illicit deduction, refusal of managrment to conduct credible audit, and non- payment of promotion arrears.
The Congress which was well attended were addressed also by the National Delegation of ASUU including Professors Mahmood Lawan(Kano), Tony Monye-Emina (Benin), Bebe Sese (Porthacourt), Ade Adejumo (Ibadan) sent to interact with members and the University management.
The one-week strike is therefore to compel the university administration to address the issues which ASUU said bothered on the welfare of her members who are being owed since 2010.
A release by the ASUU Chairman Dr Deji Omole and Secretary stated that “The Congress of ASUU, UNIBADAN at its meeting of 4th April, 2017 having received permision from the National body of the Union declared one-week warning strike beginning from 12:01 midnight today to 12:00 midnight on Tuesday 11th April, 2017”
The congress of the union maintained that the failure of the university administration to satisfactorily resolve all the issues will force the union to proceed on comprehensive and total strike until the resolution of the issues.
It should be recalled that the non-academic staff just called off their two weeks strike.
