Mar 14, Colombo: University lecturers in Sri Lanka have decided to launch an island wide token strike tomorrow (15) demanding a salary hike.

The Federation of the University Teachers' Associations (FUTA) today announced that the university academic staff will hold a token strike demanding the salary increase promised by the government.

FUTA Head Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri told the media that the university academic staff had decided to launch a strike to demand the implementation of promises given to them by the government.

The university lecturers last year demanded a salary hike and launched a token strike but called off after negotiations with the government. The FUTA said the government had agreed to grant a salary hike.
