It has been noted that the Non Academic Staff Union (ASSU) has stopped working for an upward of three weeks giving the University management an ultimatum to either reverse the current academic Vice Chancellor of the University or step down.
Owning to that sequel, the management of the Obafemi Awolowo University has threatened to withhold salaries of workers who are on strike.
The staff had started a strike action on June 6, in protest of what they considered the imposition of a Vice Chancellor on the institution.
Acccording to Premium Times, it was gathered that a directive containing the threat by the management was signed by the Registrar of the school, Dotun Awoyemi, and dated June 20.
“The university has viewed with grave concern the continued absence of some members of staff of SSANU and NASU and allied institutions from their duty post with the declaration of trade dispute since June 7, 2016,” it read.
“The University Administration hereby directs all such members of staff to immediately report to their respective duty posts; otherwise the University Administration may not be in able to guarantee the payment of June 2016 salaries to this categories of workers.”
