A special discussion in connection with the issue of the SAITM illegal medical degree awarding institute at Malabe and taking trade union action would be held with the GMOA today (3rd) morning states National Trade Union Center (NTUC).
A large number of trade unions are expected to participate in the discussion to be held with the GMOA today said the President of NTUC and the Member of the Political Bureau of the JVP K.D. Lal Kantha.
The GMOA had announced that massive trade union action would be taken as the one week period given to President Maithripala Sirisena to solve the issue has lapsed and nothing has been done.
Mr. Lal Kantha said the traded unions affiliated to his Center would strongly support any action taken by the GMOA regarding the issue and that NTUC is also prepared to take trade union action of its own against SAITM and the attempt by the government to privatize education and weaken free education opportunities for the children of this country.
