Federation of University Teachers’ Association (FUTA) said that they will not withdraw from any of the trade union actions since their demands were not positively received at the discussion held with the President last evening.

"The President acknowledged and accepted the salary issue of academics. But no decision was made with regard to solving the issues," FUTA President Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri said speaking to Daily Mirror Online.

Speaking further Dr. Dewasiri said that another meeting between the President and members of the FUTA is scheduled for June 3rd. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    If FUTA continue with their trade union action, the government will not be able to do anything to make the universities function again as these highly qualified and experienced teachers cannot be replaced easily (unlike the abundantly available third grade politicians) or by bringing teachers from abroad, as nobody will come to teach for the low salaries paid to the academics in Sri Lanka.
    FUTA should never give-up their trade union action if their demands are not met or give-into any political pressure..

    These highly qualified academics cant be replaced with some other people. Govt should consider their demands...

    True. these were the the same guys who placed ads in newspapers urging the public to support the current govt.

    Never back down!

    These teachers every time backed the govt policies which are harmful to students and the public. Therefore no public intervention is required
