College lecturer strike over

The committee of college heads and the coordinating council of senior-faculty organizations have reached a blueprint for a collective bargaining agreement that would apply to the senior staff of the colleges after a one-day strike by lecturers at 17 public colleges. The plan was approved by representatives of the Finance Ministry and the Planning and Budgeting Committee.

According to the document of principles, a collective agreement will be formulated for a long period during which the salary tables approved for the senior faculty members of the universities will also apply to faculty members in the colleges. In addition, it was agreed that budgets should be allocated to promote and develop research and teaching.
