Chairman of the University Trade Union Joint Committee, Edward Malwattage said that non-academic staff strike action will continue as discussions held with the Ministry of Higher Education have failed.
He said that the strike will enter day 21 today (20).
A discussion was held yesterday with the Secretary to the Higher Education Ministry and Chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC) regarding their issues. However, they had failed to reach an agreement.
The Higher Education Ministry, issuing a statement yesterday, said that a positive solution to the demands of university non-academic staff will be given within today.
