MAPOLY lecturers demand immediate payment of outstanding salaries


The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) Chapter, on Friday, called on the Governing Council of the institution to pay the outstanding salaries of its members before March 16.

This is contained in a letter dated March 10 and jointly signed by Tomisi Adegunle and Samuel Malomo, the MAPOLY-ASUP Chairman and Secretary, respectively.

The letter was addressed to the Chairman, Governing Council of MAPOLY, expressing displeasure of the union over what it called the lackadaisical attitude of the Council and Management toward the wellbeing of its members.

“This is March, the third month of the year 2023 and our members are yet to receive December 2022 salary and allowances.

“In the next two weeks, our members would have been starved for four months, consecutively.

“Our displeasure is further heightened by the deprivation suffered due to the part-time lecture honorarium which has been unpaid for seven consecutive semesters,” the letter read in part.

The union demanded that the Governing Council should ensure that its members were paid all the outstanding salaries and all the arrears of part-time claims also paid, not later than March 16.

“Failure to accede to this request will make it difficult for the union to continue to guarantee industrial harmony on campus.

“Please take this as a notice for the resumption of Industrial Dispute.

“We remain committed to the upliftment of our dear citadel of learning, but not at the detriment to the welfare of our members,” the union said.

The MAPOLY lecturers explained that the institution remained a public educational institution and could not be left alone to self-finance its recurrent and capital expenditures.

The lecturers also called on the Ogun government to rise up to its responsibilities.
