Lecturers and staff members of the Polytechnic, Ibadan have shunned the nationwide industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP).
Recall that polytechnic workers had, on Tuesday, April 6 declared an indefinite strike to demand the implementation of a new salary scheme for polytechnic lecturers.
Lecturers at the polytechnic, Ibadan, however, said that they were not part of the ongoing nationwide industrial action called by the national body of ASUP, as normal academic activities were going on, with students seen in their various classes receiving lectures in the school
Some of the polytechnic lecturers who spoke to newsmen said that the institution’s chapter of ASUP had been without leadership since 2017, adding that this had accounted for the non-compliance with the national body’s directive.
