The Academic Staff Union of Universities [ASUU], Lagos State University chapter, has suspended its over two months strike. The strike began in May, citing fee hike, non-promotion of workers and non-implementation of the Universities Miscellaneous Provision Act.
Chairman of ASUU-LASU, Dr. Adekunle Idris said,
“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.”
“The congress suspended the strike action, but resolved that discussions on the outstanding issues identified by members should be continued by executives. Congress believes that the letters and spirit of the resolutions reached with the university administration, the University Appointments and Promotions Committee, and the Governing Council shall hold,”
Meanwhile, the management of LASU in a statement on Tuesday ordered members of the university community to resume full activities immediately.
