The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday said that its members have been rejecting to migrate to the Integrated Personal Payroll Information System (IPPIS) since 2013.
Dr Aniekan Brown, the Coordinator, ASUU Calabar Zone, disclosed this during a press conference in Calabar. It was recalled that on March 23 ASUU declared an industrial action against the government for not adhering to their demands. “For the records, ASUU consider the IPPIS, which is a payment system as uncongenial with the modus operandi of the university system, given the peculiarities of universities. Government has made it a front-burner, but ASSU considers it a distraction. “The mode of employment, retirement age, sabbatical leave, adjunct engagements, part-time engagements, contract engagements and others are concepts that are unique to the university, and obviously alien to IPPIS,”
