FUTA to continue TU action

2011-05-31 10:16:26

Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) today said that a decision has been made to continue their current trade union action in whatever form possible and said that it will be taken in all the universities except for J’pura, Ruhuna and Wayamba.

An interim order was given by the Court of Appeal yesterday to the Vice Chancellors of Jayewardenepura, Ruhuna and Wayamba universities preventing them from accepting the resignation letters of Department Heads, which were rendered as part of the FUTA trade union action. However, FUTA President Dr. Dewasiri told Daily Mirror Online that the academics in those universities have not been contacted by the VCs so far on resuming their duties as Department Heads.  (Lakna Paranamanna)

    Any Government should learn a lesson not to give false promises to come to power.

    This is the only way to win the demands, just like the brave FTZ workers who forced the government to withdraw their stupid plan of private sector pensions!

    It seems a different student /union is effective in challenging the teachers. What will be the outcome of this ?
