Universities in the country will be inactive for a second time this month from Wednesday as non-academic university staff will go on strike again since the government had not come forward for discussions to address their demands for higher wages and benefits, university non-academics said today.

The Executive Officers, Academic Sub-ordinary and University Executive Staff Union Joint Committee went on strike on Thursday and Friday last week in protest against the government’s failure to provide the demands that they had requested for since August last year.

“The unviersites cannot function without us. The laboratories, university classrooms, libraries, administrative functions, none of these are possible without the non-academic staff. If the government does not come forward for talks then we shall continue to go on strike,” he said.

On February 2 the union had discussions with the Salary Cadre Commission and education authorities which had assured them that a solution would be provided in 14 days time. However no word had still been given, he said. (Olindhi Jayasundere)
