UI IMPLEMENTS THREE-DAY WORK WEEK FOR STAFF DUE TO FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL

Date:

The University of Ibadan (UI) in Oyo State has instructed its staff to work three days per week to mitigate the impact of the rising transportation costs resulting from the removal of fuel subsidies. This directive was communicated through a special release titled “Temporary Work Schedule Adjustment,” dated August 14, 2023.

The adjustment to the work schedule was proposed and subsequently approved by the Senate during its meeting on Thursday, August 3, 2023. In an announcement from the Registrar and Secretary to the Council, Ganiyu Oke Saliu, the university attributed the decision to the significant surge in the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), commonly known as petrol.

Letter

The university emphasized that the elevated PMS prices have imposed significant economic challenges on Nigerians; particularly affecting salaried individuals who commute to work on a daily basis. In line with the directive, employees will be required to work on a rotating basis for three days each week, starting from Monday, August 14, 2023. It is important to note that essential workers will be exempt from this adjustment.

The management clarified that the temporary work schedule arrangement will be subject to regular review based on the prevailing circumstances. UI workers were urged to uphold commitment, transparent communication, and collaboration to ensure smooth workflow. Additionally, they were encouraged to work from home when necessary.

The university’s management concluded by seeking the cooperation and understanding of all Deans, Directors, Heads of Departments, and units to facilitate the seamless implementation of this intervention.
