Yabatech Lecturers Go On Indefinite Strike Action


Workers at the Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Lagos State, under the aegis of the Joint Forum of YABATECH Staff Unions Thursday declared an indefinite strike over what they described as illegal deductions in their salaries and non-payment of allowances.

The forum, which comprises the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) and Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU), took the decision at a joint congress at the polytechnic’s sports centre, where more than 100 members took part.

This is even as the ASUP members at the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, Thursday disagreed on the implementation of CONTISS 15 salary scale, leading to chaos at the congress held on the campus.

Addressing the congress, the ASUP Chairman, Mr. Adeyemi Aromolaran said all the allowances accrued to the staff had been removed when they were paid July salary on Wednesday, August 3.

He recalled that management had called a meeting with the chairmen of the three unions about a month ago, to inform them of a directive from the Education Minister, Mallam Adamu Adamu, to stop paying allowances from the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), but that the Rector, Dr. Margaret Kudirat Ladipo could not provide proof when confronted.
