The College of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU), Ekiadolor Chapter, has commenced a three-day warning strike over failure by the management of the state owned institution to honour an earlier agreement it entered into bordering on staff welfare.
As part of resolutions at the academic congress of the institution on July 30, 2014, the angry lecturers said to avert total shut down of academic activities they were demanding immediate payment of 2013 headship allowance to heads of department/coordinators, deans/ directors of various schools, among others.
The lecturers also complained that a lot of money was being owed their trust fund, and that they now receive half salaries, each time salaries were available.
In a jointly signed communiqué by the Chairman of (COEASU), Fred Omonuwa, and its secretary, Dr. Victor Okosun, the union regretted that series of peace meeting held between the management and academic staff members to avert strike had met brick walls.
They vowed that if nothing was done at the expiration of the three-day warning strike, they would have no choice than to elongate the strike to press home their demand.
In a similar vein, the Coalition of Unions of State Owned Tertiary Institutions, Edo State, also appealed to the state government to pay the 16 months salaries owed staff arising from the differentials in the implementation of salary structure of CONPCASS and CONTEDISS from July 2009 to October 2010.
