YABATECH constructs office complex for non-academic union

Mr Peters Adeyemi, the National Secretary, Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), on Thursday commended authorities of Yaba College of Technology for constructing an office complex for its members in the institution.
Adeyemi spoke at the inauguration of the complex, held alongside the 2nd Regular Meeting of the Polytechnics and Other Trade Groups Council at the college.
The NASU scribe thanked the rector, Dr Margaret Ladipo for the support provided for members of the union in spite of the present economic challenges.
He said that the complex, a one-storey building with four offices, one conference hall, one cafeteria, alongside other facilities, would be of great benefit to both the college community and the union.
“I commend the rector for her role in providing welfare for NASU members in the college.
“The situation in the country is very bad, and if you find a management, despite the critical constraint, can still improve the welfare of workers, I think we need to salute them.
“As we commend those who are doing well, we will condemn the state governors who are not doing well,’’ he said.
Adeyemi said the 2nd Regular Meeting of the Polytechnics and Other Trade Groups Council holding at the college, came at a critical time in the history of the country.
Dr Margaret Ladipo, Rector of the college commended NASU executives and members in the college for their resilience and consistency in the college.
Ladipo said the office complex was a reality because of the spirit of leadership displayed by the union.
“The old building was made of plank and for over 20 years, it remained that way because past managements were not interested in developing it.
“When the union approached me, I visited the place and the management decided to build a permanent cafeteria for the college.
“I am honoured to host the Polytechnics and Other Trade Groups Council meeting of NASU,” she said.
Ladipo thanked the NASU college branch chairman and his executives for the high level of maturity of the union  and its disposition to dialogue rather than confrontation.
Mr Ilesanmi Olatunbosun, the NASU Chairman in the college, commended the management for the construction of the new complex.
Olatunbosun listed other things the union had enjoyed in the college to include reinstatement of NASU members who were sacked in 2008, yearly upgrading and conversion of members, regular promotion and implementation of CONTISS 15 since 2013.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that NASU presented an award to the rector in recognition of her performance in the area of welfare of its members. (NAN)
