ASUU threatens strike at LAUTECH over unpaid salaries
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Chapter, has issued a 10-day ultimatum to the management to pay their August, September and October salaries or face industrial crisis.
The union said it might resort to strike at the expiration of the ultimatum if the university fails to pay.This was contained in a congress resolution jointly signed by the Chairman, Dr. Biodun Olaniran and Secretary, Dr. Toyin Abegunrin, which was made available to newsmen in Ibadan yesterday.
The union also threatened to withhold the Rain Semester results of 2018/2019 academic session until the salaries are paid.According to the union, LAUTECH academics deserved to be paid their earned salaries without begging.It was gathered that the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Michael Ologunde, had attributed non-payment of salaries to non-release of subvention to it by the owner-states, Oyo and Osun.
ASUU maintained that the welfare of her members remained paramount in her demands and would do everything at her disposal not to expose them to undeserved economic hardship.
