ASUU Strike: ASUU continues strike as Federal govt deadline expires today

Striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Sunday vowed not to resume work despite the federal government's ultimatum that they should do so by today or risk losing their jobs.

The federal government had last week shifted the deadline for the resumption of the teachers, who have been on strike since July from last Wednesday to today.

However, the union has remained adamant, insisting that its members would not go back to work, despite the threat as the government is not towing the line that would resolve the crisis.

The union again added that it would not resume work until its demands as agreed with President Goodluck Jonathan at the November 4 meeting are all met.

ASUU insist that the government threat to sack its members would not break the union’s resolve to pursue its action to a logical conclusion.
