Striking Varsity Unions Lament Salary Stoppage by Maxymilliano(m): 9:19am On Jul 06
Striking university unions, including the Academic Staff Union of Universities and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, have lamented the effect of the no-work-no-pay policy invoked by the Federal Government, saying it was meant to weaken their resolve.

The National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke; and SSANU’s National Vice-President, Dr Abdussobur Salaam, spoke in separate interviews with The PUNCH.

Osodeke told our correspondent that the last time he received his salary was in February, adding that the government’s strategy of withholding their salaries is meant to weaken their resolve over the union’s demands.

He however said members of the union would remain steadfast even if they will have to do menial jobs or embark on farming to get money.

He added that three weeks after they had the last meeting with the renegotiation committee, nothing had been heard from the government.

He said, “We have not heard anything from the government. This is the third week after the meeting with the renegotiation committee headed by Prof. Briggs. We will keep waiting until they respond.

Ngige believes that our members will become hungry and beg them, but we will not beg them. We are ready to wait for a year, two years, till they respond.

If it means doing taxi work, selling groundnut, doing farming to feed, we will engage in those ventures but he should be rest assured that his strategy of withholding our salaries will not work.”

Salaam corroborated Osodeke’s position, saying the government has resolved to use coercive means through salary stoppage.

He said, “The government itself has been delaying the process of negotiations. It seems they are comfortable with allowing the strike to linger long because there has been no serious commitment to any issues so far.

“Government must show more commitment towards resolving the issues that led to the strike rather than using coercive means through salary stoppage.”

A Professor of Linguistics, University of Ibadan, Francis Egbokhare, also confirmed that he had been without salary for five months.

He said, “If you don’t pay people who have accumulated much debt, the system will pay, one way or the other.

“Morale is already very low. Complicating it by withholding salaries will be a monumental error. The consequences on the system will reverberate everywhere. A good number of lecturers have left for greener pastures overseas. Many have adapted to alternative income operations.

“If we are not paid, self-help and coping strategies will be mainstreamed and normalised. I think that a simple cost-benefit analysis will reveal the folly in the threat.”

A lawyer, Mr Oluwafemi Olabisi, said it was an unfair labour practice for workers not to be paid their salaries while on strike.

He said, “The only situation where workers are not allowed to earn salaries is when there is no more employer-employee relationship.

“But if workers are down tooling or on strike for a course or an agitation, like what ASUU and other university workers are doing, they cannot be suspended while they are on strike and their salary cannot be stopped.

“If the government has refused to pay, it is illegal, it is not allowed under the Nigerian Labour Law. It is contrary to international best practices.”

Unfortunately, It's Nigeria students caught in the midst of the tussle that bears the brunt of the indefinite stay at home.

4 months plus at home is equivalent to a semester + break
Striking workers may not receive their salary as at when due, due to "no work no pay" policy but who suffers the most.......The students.

No work no pay is the best policy the government can use to curtail the concurrent strikes by ASUU.
They are not the only union in Nigeria for crying out loud, it is not as if they are fighting for the interest of the vercities nor the students instead it is for their selfish interests.
ASUU find it easy to sanctions student or group of students who think they are been deprived of their rights but when the government is doing the same they embark on strikes.

What is it exactly they are fighting for and how is that going to improve the quality of education in Nigeria? There is no point if what they are clamoring for won't improve educational quality

The poor masses will not know what ASUU is doing. They are the only people with the gut to hold federal government to do the right thing. Hunger is part of good health... They should hold on things will soon be right.

In 2007 pdp told us Yaradua is a professor of the Ivory Tower, Jonathan Goodluck his deputy is a professor of the Ivory Tower, they came into office, yet they were not able to settle this ASUU nonsense once & for all, yet some ignorant mumus will blame a soldier for the problem?

Oblivious Hypocrisy is indeed a curse.
