The Academic Staff Union of Universities has told the federal government to expect a “no pay no work” strike action if salaries of its members, who are yet to register on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), are stopped.
ASUU disclosed this recently in a tweet.
FG had directed that as from January 2020, the payment of salaries to lecturers and members of staff of tertiary institutions who are not enrolled on IPPIS, should be stopped.
But ASUU said that “We don’t need to wait for any directive from NEC and an injury to one is an injury to all.
“Immediately salaries are paid and we discovered that other members of staff are paid and our members are not paid, we will automatically begin the strike.”
THE WHISTLER had reported that ASUU, during a recent meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, had asked the federal government to respect the autonomy of universities as well as to allow it to design its own payroll model.
But FG’s insistence on IPPIS has been that it is in line with global best practices, according to a government official.
