Varsity threatens to stop salaries of striking lecturers

14 October 2013, 21:56

Yola - The management of the Adamawa State University, Mubi, on Monday threatened that it would no longer pay salaries of striking lecturers in the university.

The warning is contained in a statement, signed by the Registrar of the university, Jinatu Garnvwa, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) in Yola.

The strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which commenced on July 3, has yet to be resolved by the government and the union.

Jinatu said that sub-section 4 of the Labour Act, Chapter 198, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990 states that "every employee is free to be a member of a trade union and to participate in its lawful activities.

"It also provide that no employee shall demand as a right from employer any payment of the agreed wages after 90 days of a subsisting strike.

"In the light of the above provision of the labour act, you should note that the 90 days of the subsisting strike had expired on Sept. 30.

"Therefore, the university will no longer pay the salaries of your members." she stated.
