The JVP today expressed its support to the trade union action announced by the university teachers demanding a pay hike with immediate effect.

Addressing a press conference, JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said that the government had deceived university academics since 2007 with empty promises of salary increases. Mr. Silva said that the demand of university teachers for a pay hike was very reasonable.

In South Asia, he said, the lowest monthly salary for university teachers was paid to university teachers in Sri Lanka, and that it was as low as Rs. 20,750 for a junior lecturer and Rs. 57,750 for a senior professor. (Kelum Bandara)

    This is a legitimate demand so the govt should respond immediately for the benifit of the hundreds of thousands of innocent students.

    Academics are very pity and poor.

    Sudantha Sunday, 08 May 2011 10:25 AM

    Acadamics got 34% increaed in their last budjet while the rest got just 5%.
    Acadamics also receive duty free car permits. This is just like win a lottery in every 5 years. In last budget govt made available more money for research too. So do not be so greedy.
