“On Wednesday, we got a call from the state government that the 65 years retirement age has been approved.
“We are indeed grateful for this gesture.”
The chairman, however, said the union had suspended its proposed strike following commitments received after a meeting with the Governing Council of the college and the management.
Ajayi said: “The union met with the Chairman Governing Council of the college, Prof. Tunde Samuel, and the management over the germane issues, which include 65 years retirement age, 53.37 per cent entertainment allowance and vacancy returns on academic staff and other allied issues.
“The outcome of the meeting with council and management was reported to the Congress on January 10 and the Congress has directed that a timeline of one month from January 10 to February 9 be given to management for the actualisation of the issues raised.
“We have agreed with the principle as discussed and we will continue with our jobs and also observe and assess the terms of the agreement.
“We demand that all retirees should start accessing their pension benefits, commencement of payment of the 53.37 per cent allowance should start in January and immediate commencement of promotion exercise to all qualified academic staff.”
Ajayi said the union would reconvene on February 12 to review all the issues and agreement.
