“The situation which our members have condoned while we dialogue with the university management has reached a breaking point which is no longer bearable by our members.
“Only recently, the union lost a female ‎member due to non-availability of money to take care of her hospital bill,’’ it stated.
According to the statement, most of our members’ children have been sent out of schools for their inability to pay up their wards school fees.
It stated that the university management told the union that fund to pay the October and November salaries and allowances had not been released to the institution.
