[www.inewsguyana.com] – The University of Guyana Workers Union (UGWU) and the University of Guyana Senior Staff Association (UGSSA) have rejected another salary increase offer from the University’s administration.
This was confirmed by well-placed sources at the negotiating table who told iNews that the offer was too meager. According to the source, the rejected offer would see the workers receiving, 5% salary increase now and 10% over the next two consecutive years.
The unions had been calling for a 60% across the board increase in salaries and a 200% over a period of time. iNews could not reach any UGSS official for an official comment on the issue.
The administration of the University has held staunchly to its position that it will not be able to afford to increase in salaries.
