ASUU Can’t Call Off Strike Now, NLC Tells Senate

The Nigeria Labour Congress said it would be difficult for the Academic Staff Union of Universities to call off its ongoing industrial action.

President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba, stated this when he appeared before the Senate Committee on Aviation to present the position of the union on the six bills being considered by the panel to transform the agencies in the sector.

He said ASUU could not call off the strike when the issue under consideration still lingered.

He also said Government should show enough commitment to resolve the issue once and for all.

He cited the case of replacing authority with administration in the nomenclature of the Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria.

He also kicked against the provision for interim board members in the management of the aviation agencies.

Apart from that, he said that the organised labour had discovered that the bills did not address the issues of industrial relations, professionalism, and workers core interest were not accommodated in the bills.

He also faulted plans to designate the aviation sector as essential services.

The Senator Smart Adeyemi-led committee promised to look into the concerns raised by the NLC but pledged to add values to the bills.
