Uni Lecturers To Protest

The Sunday Leader

University lecturers have decided to hold a protest march in Colombo next week calling for the increase in their salaries.

The Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) has said that university academics have been left with no other option but to continue with its agitation campaign to win their demand.

Head of FUTA, Dr. Nirmal Devasiri has said that a series of protest marches and public meetings will be held by the Association to raise awareness on the issues faced by the university academics.

Devasiri has said that several rounds of discussions with the government have so far failed to bring any results to the issues faced by the university lecturers.
