The Federal Government has dragged the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to the National Industrial Court over lingering strike.
This is contained in a letter from the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige dated 8th September,
The letter is titled ‘Forwarding of a Referral Instrument in the trade dispute between the Federal government and ASUU’.
Referral Letter of the Dispute Between the Federal Government and ASUU to the National Industrial Court
Chris Ngige said the referral was raised in line with the power vested in him by the Trade dispute resolution mechanism and the provision of Section 17 of the Trade Dispute Act of 2004.
ASUU began an indefinite strike on the 14th of February and the many negotiations between it and the government have not been able to end industrial action.
ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, did not pick his calls when TVC sought his reaction to the government’s action but a top Union Leader said the lecturers await court’s decision on the matter.
