Rajarata University Independent Student Collective says that the inter university student federation has become a profit-earning institution.
Participating at a media briefing held in Colombo yesterday Rajarata University Independent Student Collective Secretary Hasita Ekanayaka said that the inter university student federation monthly earns about 150 thousand from each Faculty through the general student unions which are its branches.
Our news team inquired about this from IUSF convener Najit Indika.
The IUSF convener said that he refutes this charge with regard to finances.
Meanwhile Rajarata University Teachers’ Union has decided to end from next Monday the trade union action of refraining from educational and administrative duties that it is engaged in.
Rajarata University Teachers’ Union Secretary Dr. Venerable Olaganwatte Chandrasiri Thero said that the union representatives had met and taken this decision yesterday.
The Rajarata university teachers’ union had engaged in the trade union action due to the harassment and death threats that had been directed at the university teachers during the crisis that had cropped up in the university on 26th and 27th last month.
Teachers’ Union Secretary Venerable Olaganwatte Chandrasiri Thero said that the Vice Chancellor was informed about this decision the Teachers’ Union representatives who met yesterday had taken.
