Operation Rescue UG

Joint Statement From The Ug Senior Staff Association, Ug Workers Union And The Ug Students' Society.

We have written to and are seeking to engage the President, Chancellor and the Parliamentary Parties to resolve the following issues:

  •  cessation of political interference in academic affairs
  •  lack of transparency
  •  lack of accountability 
  •  bias in the discharge of its duties by the Council in two instances:

1. the decision to terminate the contracts of four university lecturers without a hearing;

2. the decision to advertise the position of Registrar rather than use a performance based mechanism to evaluate the incumbent as occurred in the instances when  the contracts of the Bursar and the Director of Berbice Campus ended.
