Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) today said a meeting to evaluate the progress of resolutions provided by the government will be held during the coming week.

FUTA General Secretary Dr. Terrance Madhujith speaking to Daily Mirror online said they are expecting the government to fulfill the promises made to the academics on policy related matters concerning education and the salary hike.

“The trade union action of 100 days was suspended based on three documents provided by the government – a cabinet paper issued with reference to the policy related matters on education, promise of the salary hike as well as the joint statement issued by the FUTA and the government. We are awaiting the implementation of these policy decisions,” he said.

However, he said certain decisions that were supposed to come into effect following the suspension of the trade union action are still in limbo. “We demanded the annulment of eight circulars, we believed posed a threat to university autonomy. They were supposed to be repealed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) following the suspension of our trade union action. But they are still in the process of implementing the decision,” he added. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    Dear Academics,
    Your conduct, attitudes & motives were very clear to the country. Now please get back to work and prove your worth to the average citizen & your students.

    Very hard to trust this government and therefore better to do something for the government to feel without delay. Get more strength from out side, otherwise you are not going to succeed.

    FUTA had to return empty handed after 100 days. Even if government doesn't keep it's promises what else FUTA can do in future ? Only option is resignation of entire membership.
