Bad time : wesley University lecturers yet to receive 18 month salary

.

Lecturers of the Wesley University of Science and
Technology, Ondo State, have yet to receive their 18 months
outstanding salaries, three months after calling off their
industrial action.
The authorities of the university last July closed down the
school following a protest by the lecturers, who were
demanding the payment of their outstanding salaries.
But findings by our correspondent on Monday revealed that
the authorities of the school had yet to clear the salary
arrears.
A source told our correspondent that the authorities only
paid the workers two out of the 20 months salaries owed
them.
The source, who confirmed this, however, noted that the
school management was meeting regularly with the
lecturers with a view to settling the outstanding salaries.
The source, a member of staff of the institution, explained
that the workers suspended the industrial action last
October following interventions from stakeholders.
He said, “The crisis has not ended until the payment of the
remaining salaries. Two months allowance out of over 20
months is nothing. We may likely resume strike if the
management does not clear the debt as soon as possible.”
All efforts to reach out to the Public Relations Officer of the
institution, Mr. Samuel Akindele, to speak on the matter
failed, as he did not pick his calls as of 8pm on Monday.
