Academic and non academic labour unions at the Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti have declared an indefinite strike over non-remittance of cooperative deductions and other grievances by the school management.
The unions during a peaceful protest in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, also demanded for the immediate removal of the rector, Dr Taiwo Akande.
Some of the issues raised by the unions include the irregulation demotion of staff from CONTISS 12 and below against a government circular; deduction of pension from contract and casual workers and the non-remittance of staff contributions of the cooperative society among others.
The unions also alleged that the rector of the institution is corrupt and called on the anti-graft agencies to investigate the administration of the institution.
The rector while reacting to the allegations says the actions of the unions against her was uncalled for.
