University Teachers-FUTA public campaign on April 2

University Teachers FUTA Strike April 2 Sri Lanka
Sri Lankan University lecturers/Teachers union FUTA plans to recommence their campaign to win a budgetary allocation of 6% GDP for the country's education sector.
The Federation of University Teachers' Associations (FUTA) will re-launch the public campaign on April 2.
FUTA Spokesperson Dr. Mahim Mendis last month said that the university lecturers are committed to winning a 6% GDP budgetary allocation for the education sector and would continue with the campaign that commenced last year.
Members of the FUTA carried out a three month strike last year campaigning for a salary hike for university lecturers and a 6% GDP for education.
According to FUTA, the campaign will be re-launched with the support from other organizations and movements. 


  1. FUTA is a bankrupt association. Only thing these lecturers do is going on strike and collecting their salaries. What a crime? The poor undergraduates are left on the lurch. We hope at least this time the undergraduates will not get carried away by FUTA's crocodile tears and support them. Like in any other profession university lecturers also duty bound to the society which is to educate the undergraduates. If people of other professions can do a proper job of work rather than resorting to union action at the drop of a pin why can't the university lecturers also do their jobs as expected by the general public?

  2. Universities were closed for about three months because of the greed of FUTA. This time the undergraduates are not going to support FUTA.
