Strike: ASUP, COEASU stage protest in Abuja today


The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) and the Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU), will today, in Abuja, protest government’s failure to meet their demands.

ASUP has been on strike since October 4, 2013 while COEASU began its’ strike on December 18, 2013 after a series of warning strikes they had earlier embarked upon.

The unions accused the Supervising Minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike, of engaging on a propaganda to discredit the unions and their members instead of addressing the issues.

Both unions will be protesting the failure of the government to kick-start the re-negotiation of an agreement it signed with them in 2009, which was due in July 2012.

ASUP is demanding the implementation of CONTISS 15 Migration for the lower cadres in the polytechnics and the release of the White Paper on the visitations to federal polytechnics more than one year after the exercise, as well as the failure of the government to commence a Needs Assessment for polytechnics.

The union is also demanding an end to the HND/B.Sc dichotomy.

While COEASU is protesting the “non-accreditation of its programmes, corruption of the security architecture of the colleges through outsourcing to settle political allies at the detriment of staff and government’s huge investment” and the “non-payment of pension/death benefits to families of deceased members.”
