Ekiti State University Lecturers Suspend 3-month Old Strike

Written by Brownson Etimbuk

The Ekiti State University, (EKSU) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) has called off its 3-month old strike.

Members of the union in the university embarked on strike since January over unresolved staff welfare issues and unpaid salaries.

At a marathon ASUU meeting held on Thursday, 53 per cent of members voted for strike call-off, if management could pay at least one month salary and one month deduction.

However, 43 per cent voted for the continuation of the strike.

The ASUU decision came as management of the institution also announced plans to pay one month salary and one month deduction, while negotiation continues on other aspects of the requests by the academic staff.
