LAUTECH Summons ASUU, Others Over Failure To Resume | The Precision



The management of the Ladoke Akintola
University of Technology, Ogbomoso, has invited the Academic Staff Union
of Universities and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian
University, as well as other workers’ unions in the university to a
meeting to discuss the way forward.

There is an indication that the planned
meeting is intended to address some issues, including unpaid salary
arrears of 11 months, which forced all the unions to embark on an
indefinite strike at different times.
The meeting was called just as the ASUU,
SSANU, the Non Academic Staff Union and the National Association of
Academic Technologists refused to resume on Monday despite the directive
given by the management on resumption.
The Registrar of the university, Jacob
Agboola, said in the letter written to the ASUU and the Joint Action
Committee, which comprises the three other unions, that issues relating
to the reopening of the university would be discussed at the meeting.
A copy of the letter sighted by our
correspondent reads, “The Vice Chancellor, Professor .A. S Gbadegesin,
has directed me to invite you to a meeting with the management committee
fixed for Monday, September 18.

“The meeting will discuss issues related
to the reopening of the university as contained in a recent circular.
The slight delay in releasing the circular was inadvertent as it was
occasioned by the pressure of work.”
The ASUU chairman in the university, Dr. Biodun Olaniran, confirmed the meeting to our correspondent on the telephone on Monday.
An executive of SSANU, who pleaded
anonymity, also confirmed to our correspondent that JAC was also invited
to a superset meeting by the management on Monday.
Olaniran said lecturers did not resume
on Monday despite the announcement by the management because ASUU was
not carried along and the issues which forced them to embark on the
indefinite strike had not been addressed.
He said lecturers were owed 11 months aside from other issues which compelled them to embark on an industrial action.
