ASUU STRIKE: ASUU NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL ON A MEETING REGARDING HALF PAYMENT OF SALARIES

Uncertainty about Nigerian students is on as the students are contemplating the proposed outcome of the ongoing NEC meeting of ASUU. But students are praying that ASUU should not call for another strike considering the high negative effects.

ASUU STRIKE: ASUU NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL ON A MEETING REGARDING HALF PAYMENT OF SALARIES

The National Executive Council of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has commenced its meeting, Mastery Media Nigeria reliably confirmed.

The meeting started around 12:40 pm on Monday afternoon.

A member of NEC made this known in an interview with our correspondent under anonymity. “The meeting just started”, the source said.

Mastery Media Ng gathered that the ongoing meetings of ASUU is in the payment of “half salaries” to lecturers, by the Nigeria Federal Gvernment. Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, noted that the government paid the lecturers pro-rata.

But human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, who happens to be the lead counsel to ASUU, in a statement released on Sunday, explained why the no-work-no-pay policy could not be applicable to ASUU.

Falana said, “In justifying the payment of half salaries to members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities for the month of October 2022, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has invoked the “no-work-no- pay” clause in section 43 of the Trade Disputes Act (Cap T8),  Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004. According to the Minister of Labour and Employment, the lecturers ‘were paid in pro rata to the number of days they worked in October, counting from the day that they suspended their industrial action. Pro-rata was done because you cannot pay them for work not done. Everybody’s hands are tied.

“The position of the Federal Government is factually faulty and legally misleading. Since the industrial action was called off, the public universities have adjusted their calendars to ensure that the 2021/2022 academic session is not cancelled.

“Consequently, students are currently taking lectures or writing examinations that were disrupted during the strike of the ASUU. Therefore, having regard to the facts and circumstances of the ASUU strike, the doctrine of “no work, no pay” is totally inapplicable as students who were not taught during the strike are currently attending lectures and writing examinations.
