Fri, Nov 9, 2012, 10:39 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 09, Colombo: The trade union of Sri Lanka university teachers, Federation of University Teachers' Associations (FUTA) said that a letter was sent to the Minister of Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa expressing displeasure over the breach of agreement by the education authorities with the FUTA.

The media spokesman of the FUTA Dr. Mahin Mendis said that some Vice Chancellors have not respected the agreements reached between the government and the FUTA.

In that backdrop, the effort of their three-month long strike have been wasted, Dr. Mendis said adding that the FUTA would discuss the matter further and initiate actions to guarantee implementation of their demands.

FUTA ended the strike on October 11 based on an agreement with the government. The university lecturers launched their trade union action on July 4 demanding solutions to various issues including a salary hike and allocation of 6 percent of GDP for education.
