Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Lagos State University (LASU) chapter, Dr Adekunle Idris has said that labour laws would be adhered to in fighting for their demands, saying that 7-day ultimatum will be added to the days given to the state government.
The union had issued an ultimatum, which lapsed today, to the government to meet its demands before the lecturers will embark on strike after April 30, 2014.
Speaking with LEADERSHIP in a telephone interview, the chairman reiterated that if after day days the state government fails to meet their demands, they would have no choice but to embark on strike.
The union had issued warnings over the last few months to the university authorities on the various demands of the union which border on the university’s fee hike and welfare of its members.
The vice chancellor Prof. John Obafunwa, however, appealed to ASUU-LASU not to go on strike, saying their impending strike at this moment will jeopardize the interest of the university. .
In a related development, Education Right Campaign (ERC) also support the union to embark on strike especially on the LASU hike in tuition fee among other request.
