State University Non-Academic Staff Strike Extends into Second Day

March 13, Colombo (LNW): The non-academic staff members of all 17 state universities in Sri Lanka have entered the second consecutive day of their trade union action. The token strike, initiated at noon on March 12, is a protest against the authorities’ failure to fulfill promises made during a meeting on January 22, specifically regarding the rectification of salary cuts.

As the strike continues until 4.30 p.m. today, the non-academic staff members are emphasizing their demand for a resolution to the salary cut issue. K. L. D. G. Richmond, the co-secretary of the Inter University Trade Union Federation, warned that if authorities do not provide a satisfactory solution, they are prepared to escalate the protest to an indefinite strike starting next week.

The ongoing trade union action highlights the urgency for a resolution to address the concerns of the non-academic staff members and underscores their commitment to securing fair compensation for their work.
