The varsity’s joint action Congress (JAC) went on strike on April 7 due to the non-implementation of its demands.
But in a communique on Sunday, the union’s executives said the suspension of the industrial action followed careful consideration of the offer by the institution’s management.
NAN reports that the communique was jointly signed by Temidayo Temola, Peter Akindehinde and Bobola Bamigbola on behalf of SSANU, NASU and NAAT respectively.
The unions’ executives thanked all members for their cooperation, doggedness and solidarity during the strike and urged them to resume work on Monday as agreed by JAC.
“The leadership of JAC (SSANU, NASU and NAAT), OAUSTECH branch appreciates all members for their cooperation and doggedness, we also appreciate all stakeholders for their intervention with a view to preventing further industrial action,” it read.
“This is to remind participants that the deal reached between the unions and management have been registered, and proof of reimbursement of seven months’ benefit deduction arrears has already been laid before the union executives.”
“In light of this, the unions’ strike is hereby suspended until further notice, and all members are to return to their duty duties on Monday, May 10.”
The development comes almost two weeks after the university ordered its students to return to classes for the 2019/2020 second semester.
The order was issued in response to the vote of the varsity’s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resume its earlier strike.
