Branches will vote today, after which the decision will be convened to the National executive council.

The minister of labour and employment Chris Ngige, what he described as a “failed Negotiations” dragged the striking lecturers to the National industrial court.

The court granted the motion on notice filed by the federal government directing the lecturers to return to classrooms.

Ruling on the interlocutory injunction the trial judge – Polycarp Hamman, restrianed ASUU from contuining with the industrial action pending the determination of the suit filed against ASUU by the federal government.

Displeased by the ruling the union headed to the appeal court to appeal the ruling.

It also filed a stay of execution of the ruling of the industrial court.

The court ordered the striking lecturers to call off the eight Months strike having struck out of ASUU for a stay of execution of the lower court’s order.

It is said it was within ASUU’s right to appeal to the decision of the industrial court.

Agreeing with the federal government argument that ASUU cannot approach the appellate court with “dirty hands” the panel held that should the applicant fail to obey the order of the ( lower court), the leave granted shall be automatically vacated.
