* Sri Lanka university teachers' union to discuss government promises with Minister
Sun, Dec 2, 2012, 09:26 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 02, Colombo: The trade union of Sri Lanka university teachers, Federation of University Teachers' Associations (FUTA) will hold a discussion with the Minister of Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa tomorrow (December 03).

The trade union representatives will discuss with the Minister the government's failure to fulfill the promises it gave when the FUTA decided to end their months-long strike and returned to work in October.

Representatives of the Ministry of Higher Education also will participate in the discussion.

Secretary of the FUTA Dr. Terrence Madujith said that the government had so far failed to implement the pledge to take action to make the university teachers' service a special service as agreed at the settlement of the strike of the university teachers.

A committee is also proposed to be appointed to implement this promise and the FUTA says that it has not been made a reality despite FUTA naming two representatives to the committee.
