The two weeks definite strike of the Union will be rounding off on the 29th of May, 2022, as agreed by the emergency meeting of NEC.

“Consequently, the Union is requesting members to resume duties effective 30th of May, 2022, while hoping that government will take advantage of the window to address the 5 outstanding items.


“Further directives shall be released after the 103rd meeting of NEC which is scheduled to hold in the month of June 2022, during which the situation shall be reviewed,” the statement or ad in part.

According to the union, the move followed “the significant inroads made in four (4) of the items in our list of demands, which include payment of arrears of the new minimum wage among others.”

However, ASUP said there are four more outstanding issues yet to be addressed by the government.

“This includes the release of the approved N15 billion revitalization fund for the sector.

“This issue is still stuck in the Federal Ministry of Finance with a promise of follow-up action by the Education Ministry,” the statement added.
