Striking MUBS Lecturers Asked To Resume Work Immediately
The Makerere University Business School (MUBS) management has asked striking lecturers to resume work and help finalists with their examinations that were scheduled to begin yesterday.
In a note issued by the MUBS principal, Prof. Waswa Balunywa, the MUBS council had resolved that the students continue with their exams amidst the uncertainty created by the strike and that the staff that do not wish to invilage and mark exams may wish to transfer their services out of MUBS rather than lead to the closure of the school.
Balunywa noted that “the problem at hand is that Government decided to enhance salaries of staff in public universities in 2015 for only those who were in post. Staff recruited or promoted after that period have never been enhanced. They are in MUBS on a salary scale of person to holder.”
He however assured the lecturers that their cause was justified and government was yet to resolve it.
The Lecturers laid down their tools last week, protesting against delays to enhance salaries
