The striking Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU says it will file an appeal on Friday, September, 23 against the ruling of the National Industrial Court.
Justice Polycarp Hamman in his ruling on Wednesday, had ordered the union’s members to call off the strike and go back to work.
However, Counsel for ASUU, Femi Falana (SAN), disclosed in an interview with The PUNCH in Abuja on Thursday that the union will appeal the ruling on Friday.
“We are filing the appeal tomorrow (Friday) morning. We just got the certified true copy of the judgment on Thursday. The appeal will be filed first thing Friday morning.”
ASUU began striking on February 14, demanding improved funding for universities and a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.
