Lagos State University chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU-LASU) has suspended its over two months’ old strike. The Union has been on strike since May, citing fee hike, non-promotion of workers and non-implementation of the Universities Miscellaneous Provision Act as reasons for the its action. According to reports, Chairman of ASUU-LASU, Dr. Adekunle Idris, said the decision to resume academic activities was unanimously taken by members of the union at its last congress. “We have suspended our strike on Monday. The decision was taken during our last congress and this is because half of our demands have been met,” Before the suspension of the strike, the Union had met with the management of the school on July 2 in which certain resolutions were reached. The parties at the meeting agreed that promotion was an ongoing exercise, and any academic staff meriting promotion should be promoted following established procedures. It was also agreed at the meeting that all outstanding cases of promotion should be forwarded to the University Appointments and Promotions (Academic) Committee according to established procedures. On the University Miscellaneous Provision Act 2012, it was resolved that it was not within the purview of the school management. ASUU-LASU maintained, however, that the issue of retirement age was within the purview of the Governing Council and that the Miscellaneous Act [2012] which stipulates the new retirement age, was contained in the ASUU/FGN Agreement of 2009, which the Lagos State Government had agreed to implement by an agreement reached with the staff unions on in December, 2010. However, the management of LASU in a statement on Tuesday ordered members of the university community to resume full activities immediately. Public Relations Officer of LASU, Mr. Kayode Sutton, in the statement, said, “Full academic activities for the 2013/2014 academic session are expected to commence on the university campus, Ojo, and all its external campuses with immediate effect. © 2014 Nigeriafilms.com Click the link below to go to...
