Utech lecturers say more stringent actions may be taken if government does not address wage concerns

Lecturers at the University of Technology, (Utech) say more stringent actions, may have to be taken if they do not receive communication from the government about outstanding wage related matters.

On Monday, academic and administrative staff at Utech’s St. Andrew and St. James campuses staged silent protests to press the university and government to reconsider the wage deals being offered to them.

The protests followed the recent rejection of the government’s latest offers, by Utech’s Administrative Staff Union, (UTASA), and the University of Technology Academic Staff Union, (UTASU).

UTASU’s Public Relations Officer, Dr. Tashieka Burris-Melville told Irie Fm News that up to last evening, the finance ministry had not responded to the silent protests.

She said while there is no plan to continue the actions today, if the government continues to ignore the workers’ plea, more stringent actions will be taken.
