Strike: LASPOTECH staff unions allegedly threatening to disrupt ReadySetWork programme

Our Correspondent 

The Lagos State Polytechnic staff unions which comprises of Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) and Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have allegedly threatened to disrupt Saturday’s ReadySetWork Programme in the school’s Ikorodu campus.

This came after Lagos State Government filed a motion on notice for interlocutory injunction before the National Industrial Court sitting in Lagos to restrain the unions from embarking on another strike action.

The Special Adviser to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Education, Obafela Bank-Olemoh, in a statement on Friday, said the originating processes and motion on notice for interlocutory injunction have been served on the three unions.

As a result of this, the three unions according to a source have decided to stop Saturday’s Ready-Set-Work programme which is an initiative of Lagos State Government from holding in the Ikorodu campus of the school.

The source told our correspondent that the unions were angry with the state government for taking the matter to court considering the fact that they are fighting for their right.

Meanwhile, the project team of the ReadySetWork programme has assured LASPOTIANS that the programme will go on as planned on Saturday in LASPOTECH without any disruption.

In an email sent to the students participating in the 13weeks programme, the team says; “as usual, training will take place in the 3 centers which are LASU, LASPOTECH and UNILAG”

“For LASPOTECH students and students from other school who have centers in LASPOTECH, RSW will take place as normal in LASPOTECH. All activities remain the same, kindly endeavour to get to your center on time.”
