ASUP Urges Federal Government, States To Pay Arrears Of Minimum Wage

The Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnics (ASUP) has called on the federal and some state governments to pay outstanding arrears of the minimum wage to its members as contained in the Memorandum of Action  (MOA).
According to a statement by the ASUP’s national publicity secretary in Bauchi state, Abdullahi Yelwa, the union also frowned at the delays in the release of the approved 15 billion naira revitalization fund,  non-payment of salaries to its members in some state-owned institutions, and non-commencement of the renegotiation of the 2010  agreement.
Yelwa, however, said that members of the public should hold the government responsible in the event of breakdown of industrial harmony as the union and its members have shown considerable patience and restraint.
