University lecturers have vowed to continue with its trade union action since the government has yet failed to address their demand, adding that they have not yet been invited for a discussion with the President.

The Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) has said the university academics were still firm on their decision to withdraw from the evaluation of GCE A/Level examination this year.

Head of FUTA, Nimal Dewasiri has said the university lecturers would not stop their union action until the government granted them the promised pay hike.
