May pasok uli! Classes resume at Silliman

Jul 26, 2017 @ 9:04

One week after teachers held a strike, classes are to resume at Silliman University in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental this week.

This was after the teachers’ union lifted its three-day strike upon reaching an agreement with school management, spokesman Mark Raygan Garcia said.

The strike stemmed from a deadlock in negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, with the faculty seeking P86 million in wages and other benefits but the administration offering only P63 million .

Garcia said the Silliman University Faculty Association and school management met last July 21 with the Tripartite Industrial Peace Council in Negros Oriental.

Union members picketed major gates at the university for three days last week after faculty association president Jan Credo declared a strike last July 19.

A re-computation allowed an improvement of the SU package offer for 407 regular academic personnel for three years from School Year 2016-2017 to 2018-2019.
