ASUU: FG TO MODIFY IPPIS, ACCOMMODATE UTAS

Published

on

The Federal Government will modify the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System to accommodate the peculiarities of the University Transparency Accountability System, a payroll system developed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities for the payment of salaries and allowances of University lecturers and the Universities Peculiar Personnel Payroll System developed by the The Joint Action Committee of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities  and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, The PUNCH reports.

Our correspondent gathered that this was discussed during the meeting of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and ASUU’s executive on Monday.

The PUNCH reports that the issues surrounding the deployment of UTAS and UP3S formed part of the reasons why the lecturers and non-academic staff downed tools.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The university workers had blamed inconsistencies and the failure of the IPPIS to capture the peculiarities of the university system for their rejection.

“The lecturers were told that the IPPIS will be modified to accommodate the peculiarities of UTAS. It will be too expensive to run two payment platforms concurrently”, a source who did not want his name in print explained to The PUNCH.

The PUNCH reports that members of the National Executive Council of ASUU will meet on Thursday to take a formal stance on the eight-month-old strike.

NLC, TUC, ASUU, Others Defy Court Order As They Begin Strike

Published

on

The NLC had on Monday announced the commencement of the industrial action from midnight of Monday, 13 November, in defiance to a restraining order issued by the National Industrial Court in Abuja on Friday.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and its affiliates including the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), on Tuesday, began a nationwide strike, in defiance to a restraining court order barring them from embarking on the industrial action.

The two major labour unions, NLC and TUC, had declared the strike, following the brutalisation of the NLC president, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State on 1 November. Mr Ajaero was attacked in Owerri, the state capital, during an NLC protest against the Imo State government over alleged maltreatment of workers in the state.

The unions on Monday directed their members to down tools across the country as from Tuesday.

This is despite the restraining order issued by the National Industrial Court, in Abuja, on Friday, stopping the labour unions from embarking on the strike. The judge, Benedict Kanyip, ordered the two major labour unions to stop their industrial action scheduled to commence 14 November.

The interim order followed an ex-parte request by the Nigerian government through the office of Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, due to the Labour unions’ threat to embark on strike.

Ignoring the court order, ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, a professor of soil science, on Monday, directed compliance with the strike declaration in a letter to ASUU zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons across the country.

“As an affiliate of NLC, all members of our union are hereby directed to join this action of NLC to protect the interest of Nigerian workers and the leadership of the union. Zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons should immediately mobilise our members to participate in the action,” ASUU President, Mr Osodeke, wrote in a letter to zonal and branch chairpersons of the union.

When PREMIUM TIMES asked Mr Osodeke if he was aware of the subsisting court order stopping the strike, he said the question should be directed to the NLC which called for the strike.

“Call the NLC, ASUU did not declare a strike, NLC declared the strike. Call NLC,” he said in a telephone interview on Tuesday morning.

But the NLC’s head of information, Benson Upah, did not respond to phone calls and messages sent to his line requesting for comments, as of the time of filing this report.

The labour unions had, on Monday, refused to acknowledge the court order while directing their members to withdraw their services as from Tuesday.
