University Strike Forces Postponement of Examinations

May 17, Colombo (LNW): The University Grants Commission (UGC) has announced the postponement of all undergraduate examinations in universities due to an ongoing strike by non-academic trade unions.

UGC Vice Chairman, Senior Prof. Chandana P. Udawatte, stated that the strike, now in its 16th day, will affect over 50,000 undergraduates, preventing them from completing their degrees within the planned timeframe. Additionally, the issuance of the university admission manual for students who passed the Advanced Level Examination has been delayed.

The Minister of Education has submitted proposals to the Cabinet to address the issues raised by the non-academic staff. Despite these efforts, Co-Convener of the University Trade Union Alliance, Dhammika S. Priyantha, affirmed that the strike will continue indefinitely until their demands are met with satisfactory solutions.
