Universities Senior Staff announce strike 

Senior Staff Association of Universities has announced an indefinite strike over the 20% Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).

The association joins the public sector labour unions who have embarked on strike demanding a cost of living allowance (COLA) calculated as 20% of basic salary.  The Senior Staff Association want the government to pay their accrued interest on tier two pension arrears from 2016 to 2021.

“Today, the Senior Staff of Public Universities will address you. I want to make this clear to all our workers. With this particular strike, we will not exempt any staff. Teaching staff, you are going home. Principal staff, you are going home. Drivers, you are going home.”

“Yesterday they threatened to freeze our salaries [if we embark on strike] and we will tell them we are capable [of declaring the strike]. We have said if we do not hear anything positive from them, we will lay down our tools. We are demanding 20 percent COLA and nothing else.”
