The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka branch, has rejected the “clock-in and clock-out” policy recently introduced for academic staff by the institution’s management.

The union stated its position in a letter dated Aug. 10 sent to the state’s Commissioner for Higher Education signed by the branch chairman and secretary, Prof. Abel Diakparomre and Dr Emmanuel Ufuophu-Biri, respectively.

ASUU said the policy was unacademic, unprecedented and a deviation from best-practices in the global academic community.

It explained that the letter emanated from its congress held on Aug. 6 following announcement of the policy by the university’s Deputy Registrar (Establishment), Mr Emmanuel Egheneji, through a memo dated July 31.

“The said memo stated that with effect from Aug. 1, 2018, academic staff are to“clock-in and clock-out each time they resume and close from duties.

“After an extensive deliberation, Congress resolved that the University is a creation of law, which has self-regulating provisions and that academic of the University would continue to be guided by those provisions.

“The policy of clocking-in and clocking-out is not academic, it is unprecedented, and deviates from best-practices of the global academic community”, the union said.
