The University of Technology Jamaica Administrative Staff Association, UTASU, has served the University of Technology, UTECH, with a 72-hour strike notice to end this Sunday.

This means effective Monday morning the association will take industrial action.

This they view as necessary after the university failed to submit pertinent documents to the Ministry of Finance and Planning to allow for the commencement of wage negotiations.

UTASU, is also concerned that adjustments to the rate of travelling allowances which were mandated by the Ministry have not been implemented by the University.

They also cite what they perceive as unjust victimization of a senior manager for conducting her due diligence in pursuant to her job as of Monday November 30.

UTASU says they can no longer operate under the climate of distrust and uncertainty and therefore feel compelled to take decisive action.
