Sri Lanka Govt has decided not grant wage hike for protesting University staff because of State Intelligence Service warning !

More than two months of protest by the non-academic staff has crippled the smooth operations of the island nation’s state universities.

Nearly 14,600 non-academic employees from 17 state universities and 19 joint post-graduate institutions have been on strike for 65 days demanding higher wages.

The trade union action has severely disrupted the higher education sector and adversely affected the lives of 250,000 young undergraduates.
