Industrial Court Upholds FG No Work No Pay Rule Against ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has lost its move to compel the Federal Government to pay lecturers  for the period of strike, following the verdict of the 
National Industrial Court which upheld the no work no pay rule against the affected lectuerers in public universities

President of the Court, Justice Benedict Kanyip in his judgement, said that the no work no pay rule enforced by the Federal Government against members of ASUU who went on strike last year is perfectly legal.

 The court held that it is within the right of the Federal Government to withhold salaries of workers who embark on industrial action.

The court however held that it is a violation of University Autonomy for the Federal Government to impose the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) platform on members of ASUU who reserve the right to determine how their salaries should be paid.

The Federal Government had dragged ASUU before the National Industrial Court over the demand of the Union for the payment of their salaries from February 14 to October 7, 2022, when the strike was called off
