We can't afford to pay professors full-time salaries for half-time work - FG


We can't afford to pay professors full-time salaries for half-time work - FG
Lecturers organized by the Academic Staff Union of Universities have been given an explanation for the Federal Government's decision to withhold part of their compensation (ASUU).

The union's National Executive Council (NEC) has scheduled an emergency meeting for Monday to discuss the pay reduction.

The Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment issued a statement on Saturday explaining that the government has given ASUU members a pro-rated October wage.

That's why it was written that everything was done on a pro-rata basis, as paying professors for time not taught is impossible.

Since the Court of Appeal affirmed the National Industrial Court of Nigeria's order requesting that ASUU return to work, the union's leadership has written to the Minister to advise him that ASUU has paused the strike. Our labor inspectors in a number of states have also certified that they have returned to work, and the Federal Ministry of Education replied to him in a similar spirit.

The Minister then instructed the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget, and Planning to resume paying them. From the day they called off their strike until the end of October, they worked, and they were paid accordingly. Since it would be unfair to compensate someone for time they did not put in, payment was calculated on a pro rata basis. No one can do anything about it.

Beginning their strike on February 14, 2022, ASUU eventually called it off on October 14. The administration claimed that teachers shouldn't get paid during the strike.
