The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, on Tuesday said the union will not go back on its strike which began today December 12 in all the nation’s polytechnics.
According to the National President of the union, Usman Dutse, he said this in an interview with newsmen in Lagos.
Mr Dutse said that the strike became necessary following the failure of the Federal Government to implement the 2009 and 2017 agreements reached with the union.
He said ,“There is an invitation for a meeting on December 17, but we will still commence our strike on Wednesday.
“I don’t know what will happen at the meeting or what they have decided, but until we meet with them, we cannot predict.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities have been on strike for the past five weeks.
