The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, YABATECH chapter, has on Friday, 16th August, directed members to suspend the ongoing withdrawal of services from part-time programmes with immediate effect.
The decision was reached at the end of the union’s regular congress convened to discuss the part-time issues in the college on Friday.
Chairman of the chapter, Nureni Yekini, gave the directive as part of the resolutions reached at the end of the congress.
According to Yekini, the union will resume its services for the part-time programmes on August 19. This is also after they initially withdrew their services on July 28.
He said, “The decision above was reached after extensive deliberation of the management’s compliance to the demand of the union especially on ‘amputated’ payment and other claims like project supervision, administrative claim and others.”
“Meanwhile, we have agreed to compile the outstanding claims and submit to the management through the Deans of the various schools for payment to be made as early as possible.”
“We hereby, suspend the ongoing withdrawal of services from part-time programmes with immediate effect.”
