Information reaching CrossRiverWatch suggests that the one week old strike of the Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH) branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been suspended.

The expanded executive council of the Union met with management earlier today at Pyramid hotels where CrossRiverWatch learnt that the Vice Chancellor is said to have pleaded with the union and the two reached a compromise.

The expanded executive council consists of the current one and the immediate past executive.

A congress later held at about 1:00PM at the Calabar campus of the varsity where it was agreed the strike should be suspended.

This is to save face as the convocation is scheduled for this weekend CrossRiverWatch gathered.

As at press time, the branch chairman of the Union, Dr. Emmanuel Ettah told CrossRiverWatch on phone that an agreement was been drafted and when signed, the strike will be suspended immediately.

“We are yet to sign our agreement, once we sign the agreement then we can suspend the strike. That is where we are now,” Dr. Ettah said.

CrossRiverWatch gathered that a congress was held on Monday and the branch chairman informed congress that following a meeting with the deputy Governor, Professor Ivaera Esu on Friday, the state pleaded that the Union suspends the strike as their demands will be met by January.

This is said to have angered members.

But, after closing by 6:00PM, members received text messages by 10:00PM that another congress is slated for 1:00PM on Tuesday which left many wondering whether the conditions have been met.
