ABSTRACT
This study examined strike actions and the achievement of aims in Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Uyo,Akwa Ibom State. The broad objective of this study was to examine the relationship between strike actions and the achievement of aims in ASUU, in terms of its effectiveness and using it to draw a conclusion on how far strike actions has helped the union in the achievement of its aims. The population of the study was the entire academic staffs of the University of Uyo which were1503 in number and a sample size of 316 was drawn using the Taro Yamane method of sample size determination. The statistical tools employed for analyzing the data collected for this research include simple percentage, mean and frequency distribution table and the Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (PPMC) which was used for testing the hypotheses. The result revealed that there is a negative correlation between strike actions and aims achievement of ASUU. The result also shows that ASUU strike actions have not helped in the improvement of infrastructural facilities of universities, increase in level of funding and achievement of university autonomy in the University of Uyo. Thus the researcher recommended that ASUU should adopt other means such as collective bargaining in achieving their aims, instead of undergoing prolong strike action which has lowered the standard of Nigerian education system in comparison with its counterparts abroad (word count, 231).
