Work at several universities was disrupted today due to the token strike initiated by the non-academic staff of the universities.
Secretary of the Inter University Trade Unions Federation D M Senaratna stated that although they had made several request from the authorities to rectify their salary anomalies they are yet to receive a positive response.
He added that if a solution is delayed even after today’s token strike, their trade unions would meet tonight to discuss their further course of action.
We spoke to administration offices at several universities to find out regarding disruptions caused at the universities due to the token strike.
