The Federal Government has invoked the
‘no work, no pay’ labour rule against
striking university lecturers as their
industrial action enters the 93rd day with
no end in sight.

Some of the federal university vice
chancellors have not paid the Academic
Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)
members their August and September
salaries in compliance with the
government’s directive.
Some branch chairmen of ASUU see the
government and vice chancellor’s move as
an attempt to break the rank of their
members, insisting that their members are
resolute on the ongoing strike.

Some ASUU branch chairmen told Daily
Sun that text messages were sent to vice
chancellors to apply the ‘no work, no pay’
labour rules to academic staff on strike
and that the decision had affected the
payment of salary of non-academic staff in
the university system.

According to one of the branch chairmen,
he and his exco confronted their university
management over the salary delay and the
he showed them the text message asking
them not to pay salary to ASUU members.
He stressed that the ‘no work, no pay’
labour rule had never worked, pointing out
that ASUU has a counter-measure, which
was ‘no pay, no work,’ and that the union
was not on strike because of salary
