ASUU Strike, Federal Government Resume Talks On Friday
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government will reopen talks on ongoing attempts to end the eight-month strike by the varsity lecturers on Friday.
Charles Akpan, the Spokesman for the Ministry of Labour and Employment, who revealed this to journalists on Wednesday night, said the meeting would hold at the minister’s conference hall.
Academic Staff Union of Universities began on an indefinite strike in March over a disagreement with the government on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) and funding of the universities.
The meeting, according to the ministry spokesman, Mr Charles Akpan, would address numerous pending matters, including the contentious payment platform preferred by the union.
