In a bid to relieve its members from the burden of borrowing money to transport themselves to school, JAC executive council of LAUTECH has directed its members to come to school just thrice in a week.
In a statement signed by the secretary of the joint action council, Comrade Fajoye Hamzat, the strike became imperative as the management has once again started staggered payment of salaries and allowances.
The ‘3-day on, 2-day off’ strike model is set to commence from Thursday, 17th of January, 2019.
Excerpts from the statement reads…
Arising from the above observations, the JAC executive council met today, Monday, January 14, 2019 to evaluate the situations on the campus vis-à-vis the report of the meeting with LAUTECH Alumni and the reply of JAC letter dated January 3, 2019 to the management and resolved as follows:
1. That all members of JAC comprising of SSANU,NAAT and NASU LAUTECH Branch are hereby directed to stay at home from Thursday, January 17, 2019 and to resume to JAC congress on Monday, January 21, 2019 by 8.00am at MKO LT, LAUTECH for further directive;
2. That the JAC leadership arrived at the decision above when we convinced that the payment of November and December 2018 salaries are not at sight hence our decision to relief our members from the burden of borrowing money to transport themselves to their offices and with the little one available to them will be able to sustain them to come to office for three days in a week and keep their bodies and souls; and
3. This industrial action of three days ON and two days OFF (i.e. ON on Monday to Wednesday and OFF on Thursday and Friday every week) shall be in place until we are manifestly convinced that management is ready to accede to our demands as contained in our letter dated January 3_2019.
Aluta continua Victoria ascerta.
Dare to struggle dare to victory.
Comrade Fajoye Hamzat
For and on behalf of JAC LAUTECH
