The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has insisted that the union’s proposed nationwide strike must commence till all demands are met by the Federal Government.

Unimaidgist had earlier reported that According to the union, the industrial action kicks off on Tuesday, April 6th and is indefinite. This declaration follows a meeting with Federal Government officials in Abuja this afternoon.
In addition to the new salary scheme, the union is as well demanding payment of salaries and promotion allowances owed her members by some state governments.
The National President of ASUP, Anderson Ezeibe while insisting that strike will go on, however, noted that the union will be open for dialogue with the Federal Government to resolve the issues raised.
