The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has again condemned the payment of half salaries to its members for the month of October, claiming they were portrayed as 'daily paid workers'.
The union's reaction is contained in a press release signed by its national Preident, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke on Tuesday, following the union's NEC meeting.
ASUU's NEC met on Monday to deliberate on the issue of the payment of lecturers for only eighteen days by the Federal Goverment.
According to the release, ASUU what it called a 'pro-rata' payment as "not only an aberration but a contravention of all known rules of engagement in any contract for employment in academics the world overr."
The statement also condemned the payment of the lecturers like casual workers, saying it is 'an attempt to reduce Nigerian scholars to casual workers in its entirety."
The union, however, appealed the understanding of Nigerian students, parents and other well-meaning individuals and groups while the union fights legally for the welfare of Nigerian intellectuals.
The union, according to a source, decided during that NEC meeting not to embark on another strike action to make its grievances known to the government.
