Sri Lanka FUTA News

Sri Lankan university teachers' main Union Federation of University Teachers' Associations (FUTA) held a discussion with the Higher Education Ministry Officials yesterday.
FUTA discussed about government's failure to fulfill the promises it gave when the FUTA decided to end their 3 months-long strike.

FUTA said that the government had so far failed to implement the pledge to take action to make the university teachers' service a special service as agreed at the settlement of the strike of the university teachers.

Sri Lankan Higher Education Ministry said that a committee will be appointed next week to formulate recommendations to make university lecturers, a special service.
Higher Education Ministry Secretary, Dr. Sunil Jayantha Navaratne said that they arrived at this decision during discussions with FUTA on December 3.
FUTA Secretary Dr. Terrence Madhujith said that the names of their representatives for the committee were handed over to the Ministry.
