ASUU Protests 6 Years Salary Arrears In UNICAL
Following the non-payment of allowances, members of the University of Calabar (UNICAL) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities reportedly staged a protest.
The administrator of the organization’s section of the association, John Edor while tending to newsmen during the dissent said the recompenses had been owed for over five years.
Edor also said that some of the unpaid allowances include promotion arrears, fellowship and conference allowances and other entitlements.
“We are demanding full payment of our entitlements from the management of the University of Calabar,” he said.
“Some of the entitlements include promotion arrears, fellowship and conference allowances and other entitlements.
“Some of the arrears have been owed for more than five years, depending on the individual and all efforts to make the management pay the arrears have failed.
“So, we have no option than to embark on a peaceful protest. When this fails to yield the desired results, we will carry our mats and pillows to occupy the University of Calabar. It is our common heritage.’’
