by Dasun Edirisinghe

The much anticipated Treasury Secretary Dr. P. B. Jayasundera’s letter announcing a short term solution to university teachers salary problem was issued to the Federation of University Teachers’ Associations (FUTA) yesterday.

FUTA President Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri said that their executive committee had decided to discuss the letter and issue a joint media statement with the government, after consulting branch trade unions in all universities today.

"We will decide the fate of the ongoing strike when the executive committee meets again on Thursday," he said.

Dr. Devasiri said that until then they would be on strike.

Yesterday’s FUTA executive committee meeting at the Open University of Sri Lanka lasted for two hours.

The FUTA launched the all - out strike on July 04 crippling universities.
