Among its complaints are the failure to pay federal Polytechnics’ minimum wage arrears, States owing teacher’s slaaries for five to 24 months, allegations that the union leaders were victimized, in spite of signing with Government a no victimization clause since 2017.
Alleged failure to establish a Polytech Commission for the sector to bridge regulatory gaps and failure to implement the provisions.
