Representatives of the government and university lecturers are to meet next week to discuss the alternative proposals presented by the academics to reach a consensus in order to resolve their long standing salary issues.

The Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) held a discussion on the salary issue with Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa and officials from the Higher Education Ministry.

FUTA President Nirmal Dewasiri has said that the discussion had ended positively and was therefore hopeful that the salary issue could be resolved through the discussions next week.

Dewasiri has said the university lecturers were prepared to give up their union action if an agreement is reached at the discussion with the government.
