As the name implies, ASUU is an acronym for Academic Staff Union of Universities, and each university has its own union of academic staff which we refer to as the University’s Chapter of ASUU.

This is why you will hear people refer to the Delta state university Academic Staff Union when they are referring to the body of ASUU in association with the school.

Even while each of these chapters can strike on its own, they all come together to form the National Body – ASUU, which is now led by its Chairman, ‘Professor Osodeke,’ in order to establish a more powerful voice.


This organization was established in the year 1978.

As a union, they fight for their members’ welfare, such as the payment of salaries and benefits to employees, and the only way they can accomplish this is through the use of strikes.
