Full Meaning of  ASUU.

The full meaning of ASUU is  Academic Staff Union of Universities, is a Nigerian union of university academic staff, founded in 1978.

The Union was active in struggles against the military regime during the 1980s. In 1988 the union organized a National Strike to obtain fair wages and university autonomy.

As a result, the ASUU was proscribed on 7 August 1988 and all its property seized. It was allowed to resume in 1990, but after another strike was again banned on 23 August 1992.

However, an agreement was reached on 3 September 1992 that met several of the union’s demands including the right of workers to collective bargaining. The ASUU organized further strikes in 1994 and 1996, protesting against the dismissal of staff by the Sani Abacha military regime.

When ASUU Call Off Strike?

It was recently announced that  ASUU has called off its eight-month-long strike that has grounded academic activities in the public universities.

The union was said to have take this decision after it agreed to accept government’s total payment of N70 billion.

The was disclosed by ASUU via its Twitter handle on Friday after its meeting with the Federal Government’s team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige.

It tweeted, “The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has shifted ground on FG’s offer. The Union insisted that payment of outstanding salaries must not be done as through the IPPIS platform as promised, if strike would be suspended.”

Therefore we can deduced that ASUU will acted on their decision to call off strike after the FG meet their demand by paying the agreed money. As soon as the payment is made ASUU will call off strike.
