• The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)Cross River State University of Technology (CRUTECH) chapter embarked on an indefinite strike earlier this year over what it described as the insensitive to the plight of the university workers by the state government.

    The CRUTECH workers alleged that the state government is yet to pay two months’ salaries as well as other outstanding allowances to staff members.

    Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the school, Dr. Stephen Ochang, disclosed that the four industrial unions in CRUTECH wrote to the state government last November demanding the payment of salary arrears and other outstanding allowances owed them.

    The ASUU chairman expressed dismay over the inability of the state government to meet its financial obligation to the university noting ‘salaries are no longer paid regularly.’

    Other demands of the unions include the release of N500 million to upgrade facilities in the institution as well as release of fund to pay earned allowances.
