The Taraba State University Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) chapter on Friday, announced a total and indefinite strike action.
Taraba ASUU called for an indefinite strike action over the state government failure to meet its demands and also its rebuttal of claims that it does not owe workers salaries.
According to the Taraba ASUU chapter, the strike action is pinned on the government’s failure to pay earned academic allowances, promotion arrears, fractional salaries to staff, and unsettled staff pension and gratuity scheme.
In his reaction, the Taraba State University ASUU Chairman, confirmed that other reasons for the industrial action include the institution’s non-implementation of agreements and perimeter fencing.
Meanwhile, the special adviser to the governor on media and publicity, Bala Dan-Abu in a press statement on Friday, said the outgoing governor owed no worker salaries.
