The National Executive Council of the Academic Staff Union of Universities is currently holding a meeting over payment of half-salary to its members.
According to Punch, the meeting started around 12:40 pm on Monday afternoon.
A member of NEC made this known in an interview with Punch under anonymity. “The meeting just started”, the source said.
ASUU summoned an emergency NEC meeting following the payment of “half salaries” to lecturers by the government.
The union had described the October 2022 salaries as “amputated and insensitive”.
Justifying the government’s decision, the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige noted that the government paid the lecturers pro-rata.
But human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN who happens to be the lead counsel to ASUU in a statement released on Sunday explained why the no work no pay policy could not be applicable to ASUU.
