Federal Government Takes ASUU To National Industrial Court

The Federal Government has taken the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU to the National Industrial Court over lingering #strike.

This is contained in a letter from the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige dated 8th September.

In the letter, Chris Ngige said the referral was raised in line with the power vested in him by the Trade dispute resolution mechanism and the provision of Section 17 of the Trade Dispute Act of 2004.

ASUU began an indefinite #strike on the 14th of February and the many negotiations between it and the government have not been able to end industrial action.
