The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics,(ASUP) chapter of the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) has boycotted the ongoing nationwide strike declared by the National leadership of the union. According to Mr Salami Olagbenga the Vice-Chairman, ASUP, LASPOTECH said the polytechnic could not join the strike because there was no organ of the union on ground in the polytechnic since December 2017.
Olugbenga said this was as a result of an internal crisis between the union and the polytechnic’s management which had yet to be resolved by the court.
“We are not on strike because we have some internal disputes with the management sometime last year which is still in court.
“We can’t join the strike because there is no organ of the union on ground for now.”
“Our members at some point were looking up to ASUP National to wade into the matter and resolve it, unfortunately, the national body is seriously disappointing.
“The national came to LASPOTECH at some point and met the Rector, maybe because the rector was so adamant and the case was already in court, they felt there was nothing they could do about it,” he said.
The Polytechnic Spokesman, Mr Olarewaju Kuye, also confirmed that the institution was not on strike. He said that the issues between the union and the Polytechnic management were still in court and so they await the court decision.
