TUC Dissociates Self From Bauchi Teachers’ Strike

| July 7, 2012 More

Bauchi โ€” The Bauchi council of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) yesterday dissociated itself from the planned indefinite industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASSUS) and passed a vote of confidence in support of the state commissioner of education, Alhaji Aminu Ibrahim.

A statement jointly signed by the union’s chairman Muhammed Usman and his secretary Sulisma G Lemuel said “the strike action invited by ASSUS and the demands presented are mischievous, intrusive and have the capacity to provoke and mislead any sincere administrator on their face value, and we have sincere confidence on the commissioner of education; we believe he has a lot in store for the improvement of teaching and learning in Bauchi State”.

It would be recalled that ASSUS had earlier called for the removal of the commissioner of education or face the indefinite industrial action billed to start yesterday.
