Incessant universities strike is to be broken with the coming of a parallel association known as Congress of Universities Academics, CONUA which has over 3000 members across 17 universities.
The new association which came into existence in february 2018 is praying to be seperated from the academic staff union of universities whose ideology is far different from CONUA.
The association which is going to know the fate of their registration in four weeks with the setting up of a committee by the Minister of Labour and employment Chris Ngige , is praying to be part of IPPIS platform which ASUU has rejected. it also wanted a paradigm shift where members check off dues will no longer go to ASUU, thereby breaking the monopoly of absolute power in unionism.
The Minister says it is the constitutional right of any worker to choose what union to belong to
