All universities will launch token strike today

All universities will launch token strike today

All 17 state universities countrywide launched a token strike today over several demands, including salary issues and the slashing of funds granted to universities.

 

The decision was taken following a meeting held by the State Service Trade Unions Alliance and the Federation of University Teachers’ Association (FUTA) at the premises of the Open University of Sri Lanka in Nawala yesterday.

 

A powerful protest march organized by the Professionals' Trade Union Collective was held in Colombo yesterday. The purpose of the march was to express their dissatisfaction with the PAYE taxation and the government's perceived 'arbitrary tax policy'.

 

Notably, the protest saw participation from various influential organizations such as the FUTA, GMOA (Government Medical Officers' Association) and several other trade unions.
