Half Salary: ASUU to hold NEC meeting tomorrow over half-salary

There are indications that the resumption of academic activities in the nation’s universities may become truncated once again as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is set to summon an emergency meeting of its National Executive Council (NEC).

The decision to convene the emergency NEC meeting, which is to be held at the ASUU National Secretariat on the University of Abuja campus, is coming on the heels of October salary cut received by members of the union.

The decision to convene the meeting follows the alleged payment of half salaries to the lecturers for the month of October, 2022, by the Federal Government.

Recall that ASUU recently suspended an eight month industrial action following interventions from the Court of Appeal, which upheld an earlier decision from the National Industrial Court.

No date has been fixed yet, but sources said that the decision to convene a meeting followed the surprise that greeted members of the union when some of them got an alert of half salaries in their accounts for the month of October 2022.
