Abstract

Traditionally, trade unions are usually constituted for the purpose of regulating the terms and, conditions of employment of workers. To this extent, whether a union is a trade union or may not generates serious legal controversy. In most developing countries however, trade unions have pushed the frontiers of their assignment beyond mere regulation of terms and conditions of employment of workers. In Nigeria particularly, trade unions have been involved in myriads of activities which do not have the remotest connection with the terms and condition of employment of workers, thereby becoming irresistible instruments of social activism. The result is that trade unions have hardly been allowed by governments anywhere to operate without any form of constraints. These constraints or control measures range from registrations and duty to render ?nancial accounts, to prohibitions and prosecution for certain activities declared to be offences by law, etc. This paper examines Academic Staff Union of Universities as a trade union, its impact on educational and economic development of Nigeria and the futility of its proscription by a State governor.
