The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Chapter of the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH), Okitipupa, Ondo State, has declared an indefinite strike over unpaid salaries.
The action, which takes effects from April 1, would be observed by all members of the union, until the institution’s management paid them all outstanding salaries for the first quarter of 2021.
This was contained in a communique issued after a Congress meeting of the union held on Wednesday, in Okitipupa, and jointly signed by Mr Dipo Akomolafe and Mr Rotimi Olorunisola, the union’s chairman and secretary, respectively.
The communique quoted the union as saying that its executives had met severally with the school management over the issue but that had not yielded any positive results.
“Several meetings have been held by the union and the university management over outstanding salaries for the first quarter, which did not have a positive result.

“The action is effective from 12.01a.m April 1, if all outstanding salaries were not fully paid before 12.00 midnight March 31,” the communique read.
