* Sri Lanka's university lecturers again threaten large-scale trade union action
Thu, Nov 8, 2012, 12:24 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 08, Colombo: University lecturers in Sri Lanka have warned of resorting to stern trade union action again if the government continues to ignore honoring the pledges made to them last month.

The Federation of University Teachers' Association (FUTA) says that the university lecturers are displeased by the government's failure to honor the agreements reached and that the academics would have to resort to yet another large scale trade union action to protest.

FUTA Spokesperson Dr. Mahim Mendis has said the university lecturers had called off the three month long strike action after considering the difficulties faced by the university students.

However, he has said the academics would once again be compelled to decide on a trade union action due to the government's failures.

The FUTA carried out a prolonged-strike action based on several demands including a salary hike for the university lecturers.
