Workers at the Yaba College of
Technology (YABATECH), Lagos State,
under the aegis of the Joint Forum of
YABATECH Staff Unions Thursday
declared an indefinite strike over what
they described as illegal deductions in their salaries and non-payment of
allowances.
The forum, which comprises the
Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics
(ASUP), Senior Staff Association of
Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) and Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU),
took the decision at a joint congress at
the polytechnic’s sports centre, where
more than 100 members took part.
This is even as the ASUP members at
the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, Thursday disagreed on the
implementation of CONTISS 15 salary
scale, leading to chaos at the congress
held on the campus.
Addressing the congress, the ASUP
Chairman, Mr. Adeyemi Aromolaran said all the allowances accrued to the
staff had been removed when they
were paid July salary on Wednesday,
August 3.
He recalled that management had
called a meeting with the chairmen of the three unions about a month ago,
to inform them of a directive from the
Education Minister, Mallam Adamu
Adamu, to stop paying allowances
from the Internally Generated
Revenue (IGR), but that the Rector, Dr. Margaret Kudirat Ladipo could not
provide proof when confronted.
