Varsities unions brace for battle



Universities seem to be bracing for another Industrial action.

The four unions in the universities are not happy that the government has failed to implement an agreement which led to the suspension of their strike.

Non-academic staff unions have scheduled their National Executive Council meeting for this week to consider the next line of action. Leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) are likely to meet between November 10 and 12.

Although there have been reports that the government has approved an unspecified amount of money to meet the obligation to the workers, ASUU President Biodun Ogunyemi said until they see the payment being effected, the union would not join in the speculations.
