Commission Circular No: 890

07th June, 2007.

 

Vice-Chancellors of Universities,
Rectors of Campuses,
Directors of Institutes.

 

TRADE UNION ACTION

The Commission considered the effect on the smooth functioning of the University System and the impact on the economy of the country due to loss of man hours as a result of trade union action such as token strikes, walk outs, continuous strikes, sick note campaigns, etc, launched by the employees in the University System which lead to cessation of work.

The Commission therefore decided that the days on which all the employees in the University System who do not report for duty due to trade union action as explained above, be treated as on no pay absence. Accordingly, all Higher Educational Institutions/institutes are advised to deduct the amount equivalent to the salary to be paid for the number of days/hours that they had withheld their labour (including non working days falling within the period of trade union action) from their salary due for the month concerned. The deduction of the salary should take effect within the same month.

Please bring the contents of this Circular to the notice of all the employees attached to your Institution/Institute.

The provisions of this Circular are effective from 07th June 2007.



(Prof. Gamini Samaranayake)
