A chairman of one of the branches of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has said that the union will conclude talks on its impending strike soon.

Members of the National Executive Committee of ASUU are meeting at UNILAG to finalise the union’s decision on an impending strike.

however, in a chat with The PUNCH, the source who preferred anonymity revealed that a decision will be reached at the end of an ongoing meeting at the University of Lagos.

He explained that “ASUU is being considerate but the actions of the Federal Government are not helpful.

“The least consideration, for now, is a warning strike. Some of our branch representatives feel we should commence strike outrightly but others advised that apart from the lecture free-day declared, we should embark on another warning strike before the full, indefinite strike.”

Asked what will be the next step after the warning strike, he replied, “The NEC will determine.

“But it is either we hold another congress or we embark on the full strike if the government is not forthcoming. The resolution of the ongoing meeting will determine.”
