Federal Poly staff threaten strike over poor welfare
The Academic and Non-academic staff of Hussaini Adamu Federal Polytechnic, Kazaure has issued three weeks ultimatum within which the school management must meet their demands before embarking on strike.
In their 11-count demand bordering on the welfare of members and improved academic environment, the staff under a Joint Action Congress of ASUP, SSANIP and NASU said failure of the management to address their request would lead to indefinite industrial action. Rising from their emergency meeting held yesterday at the polytechnic, the unions observed continued lack of water and electricity on campus, which they claimed has crippled academic and other official duties.
In a communiqué jointly signed by Danladi Agadi Tonga, ASUP chairman; Fararu Ahmed Adamu, NASU Chairman and SSANIP Chairman, Nura Shehu Gaya, the unions decried management negligence to staff career progression, non-payment of allowances and neglecting extant government circulars in treating staff issues.
In the communiqué, the unions regretted that the management continued to remain silent on the implementation of CONTISS 15 migration for lower cadres since the last time the management abruptly stopped the implementation with no cogent reason. They said staff have never enjoyed management sponsorship for training and failed to settle their backlog entitlements in the past three years.
