After being away from work for one month, workers of the Federal Polytechnic Auchi, Edo state, have suspended their industrial action.
The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) and Non-Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (NASUP) of Auchi Poly had collectively embarked on the strike.
The strike was prompted by the failure of institution’s management to enroll staff on CONTISS 15 Migration Salary Structure for Level 11 downward, non-payment of promotion arrears and alleged indebtedness of N1.8billion owed the unions.
A communiqué signed by Abdulganiyu Braimah (ASUP) Omonekhai Shaka (SSANIP) and Solomon Aliabakhalumhe (NASU) directed the workers to return to work.
The communique was issued after a Joint Action Congress (JAC) meeting of the unions.
“Sequel to the deliberations and resolutions reached at the inaugural meeting between the new management led by Dr. Sanusi Jimah and the executive member of the joint unions ASUP, SSANIP and NASU.
“The current strike embarked upon by the unions on February 6 to press home our demands, we hereby suspend the strike as workers are directed to resume their duties,” read the communique.
