[www.inewsguyana.com] – Employees of the University of Guyana were given their pay slips on Thursday, March 21 and the issue surrounding the late payment of salaries is attributed to slow banking process.
This is according to University of Guyana Registrar, Vincent Alexander, who made this disclosure in an invited comment, following a picketing exercise which was staged on Friday last by several employees of the university.
The staff of the University had complained that the late payment of salaries was something that has been happening continuously every month, and they were also picketing over the non-payment of their NIS and GRA contributions.
According to the Registrar, in terms of contributions, UG has benefitted from the Government clearing the debts they had up to December 2013, and the university’s subvention for the year 2014 will be determined in the 2014 National budget.
