ASUU: Court Upholds FG’s ‘No Work No Pay’ Policy

The National Industrial Court has upheld the legality of the no work no pay policy implemented by the Federal Government in the case involving the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The court has ruled that the Federal Government’s enforcement of the no work no pay principle against ASUU members who participated in last year’s strike is entirely within the bounds of the law.

The President of the Court, Justice Benedict Kanyip, delivered a verdict stating that the Federal Government has the authority to withhold the salaries of workers who engage in industrial action.

However, the court also ruled that the imposition of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) platform on ASUU members, who have the right to determine their preferred salary payment method, is a violation of University Autonomy.

Recall that the Federal Government had dragged ASUU before the National Industrial Court over the demand of the Union for the payment of their salaries from February 14 to October 7, 2022, when the strike was called off.
