ASUP’s mischievous, misleading public sector—Rector
By Suzan Edeh
BAUCHI—The management of the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi, has called on striking academic and non-academic staff of the institution to call off their strike, asking them to consider the plight of the students.
Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr. Shu’aibu Musa, made the appeal yesterday, while reacting to an earlier press conference by the Joint Action Committee of Academic, JAC, of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP; Senior Staff Association of Nigeria of Polytechnics, SSANIP, and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU, led by ASUP Chairman, Mr. Ahmed Mukaddas.
The Rector said issues of non-implementation of promotions for 2014, 2015 and 2016 , arrears of 2014, 2015 and 2016, non-payment of salary shortfall for 2016, non-payment of academic and peculiar allowances raised by the three unions of the polytechnic were national issues affecting polytechnics nationwide.
His words: “The unions demands are loaded with misrepresentations and mischievous statements of facts, which have succeeded in misleading the general public, rather than educate it on the grievances.
“At best, one can describe these notices as contrary to established Nigerian Labour and Industrial Relations Laws.
“On the issue of non-implementation of promotions and promotions arrears, it is on record that Federal Government has recently acknowledged its liability to these claims, requesting all ministries, departments and agencies to compile same and present to the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation through a circular dated July 4.”
He said the polytechnic had written and made several follow-ups to the Office of Budget of the Federation, National Board for Technical Education, Ministry of Education and the National Assembly over the non-implementation of promotions and promotion arrears.
