Teachers and Principals to Stage Island-Wide Protests Over Salary Discrepancies

June 12, Colombo (LNW): Members of the teachers’ and principals’ unions, represented by the Ceylon Teachers’ Union (CTU), will hold island-wide protests on Wednesday, June 12, demanding the resolution of salary discrepancies.

CTU General Secretary Joseph Stalin stated that despite numerous requests to the Ministry of Education, no favorable solution has been implemented. A ministerial committee has presented recommendations to address the salary discrepancies, but Stalin claims the government is delaying their implementation until next year.

The protests will commence at 2 PM on Wednesday and will take place around all zonal education offices. Additionally, the protests will also be held at GCE Ordinary Level examination paper marking centers on the same day.

Stalin highlighted that members from nearly 30 teacher-principal unions will be participating in the protest to press the government for immediate action.
