The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) at Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo State has called for immediate release of the White Paper on various panels’ reports on the state-owned institution.
The union also decried the prolonged delay in the release of the documents, calling for their immediate implementation.
This was contained in a communiqué issued after its emergency meeting over the weekend and signed by the secretary of the Arikawe Ade.
In the communiqué, the union condemned the non-payment of 10-month Salary arrears owed the polytechnic workers.
ASUP described the development as insensitivity, adding that the situation had led to the deaths of many workers in the polytechnic due to their inability to foot their medical bills as a result of financial incapacitation.
The communique reads: “We are also much disturbed by non-payment of 16-month migration arrears owed staff of the institution which depicts extreme callousness, we are now calling for its immediate payment.”
