YABATECH Lecturers Begin Indefinite Strike

Staff of Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Lagos State, under the aegis of the Joint Forum of YABATECH Staff Unions have declared an indefinite strike over what they described as illegal deductions in their salaries and non-payment of allowances.

The forum, comprising 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 ASUP members at the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, on Thursday disagreed on the implementation of CONTISS 15 salary scale, leading to chaos at a congress in 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.

Too many money-related problems involving tertiary institutions and staff these days.
