The federal government will again meet with the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) on Monday December 10 by 4pm, over the ongoing nationwide strike. This was disclosed by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, in a statement signed by the Director of Press in the Ministry, Samuel Olowookere, in Abuja.
The minister also condemned a statement credited to a lawyer, Femi Falana, who was alleged to have described the enforcement of section 43:1 of the Trade Dispute Act 2004 on the’’ No Work No Pay’’ on ASUU as illegal.
According to the Minister, the law of ‘’No Work, No Pay,’’ was a fundamental axiom in labour and industrial relations all over the world.
The earlier meeting between the FG and ASUU on Deceber 4th ended without any conclusion. We hope this next meeting will able to yield result towards ending the over one month strike action.
