ASUU declares indefinite strike in Taraba

Taraba State University chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has declared a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action.

The lecturers are embarking on a strike to press home its demands and the state government’s rebuttal of claims that it is not owing workers salaries.

The rationale behind their action is hinged on government’s failure to pay earned academic allowances, promotion arrears, fractional payment of salaries to staff as well as unsettled staff pension and gratuity scheme.

Samuel Shitaa, the Taraba State University ASUU Chairman noted that other reasons for the industrial action includes non-implementation of agreements and perimeter fencing of the institution.
