The Academic staff union of Universities (ASUU)has accused the federal government of breaching a”NO VICTIMISATION CLAUSE” agreed upon during the dialogue that led to the suspension of the strike they had embarked on.
The union, through the chairman of ASUU, University of Ibadan, professor Ayo Akinwole alleged that the federal government and the accountant general of the federation are victimising it’s members by refusing to pay them”salaries” running between two to 10 months despite suspending the strike”
The alleged refusal according to ASUU, could lead to another strike.
ASUU stated that while members are back to their duty post,the harsh economy being experienced due to unpaid salaries and non refund of deducted check-off dues will affect productivity.
The Academic union stated in a statement that the federal government refused to remit union deductions it made to the account of the union with a plan to stifle it.
While confirming that government is defraying the generally withheld five months salaries at an agonising slow rate of one outstanding salary per month.
However,it noted that the salaries of some members running to hundreds have been permanently and Consistently withheld by the office of accountant general of the federation (OAGF).
