Special FUTA Press Conference on 15th May 2011 at 10.30am at Hotel Janaki, Fife Road, Colombo 5

Futa-sl Blog, 14/05/2011,

This is to bring to your kind attention that the Federation of University Teachers Associations (FUTA) will be holding a special Press Conference to explain the current situation regarding the national university academic struggle for Dignified wages on 15th May 2011 at 10.30am at Hotel Janaki (Saphire Room).

We will explain to the general public on this day that the promises made by the government concerning academic salary grievances still remain unsolved in spite of endless discussions held with highest level officials of the government during the year 2010.

We seek the solidarity of journalists with our struggle to highlight how the government treats the national universities in Sri Lanka while claiming to transform Sri Lanka into an international knowledge Hub.
