“Therefore, the correct total allocation should be Shs33.8b. The purpose of this letter is to ask your office to make correct allocation which will reflect Shs29.5b and the Shs4.3b giving a total of Shs33.8b,” PUNTSEF stressed in the letter.
According to the PUNTSEF chairperson Mr Jackson Betihamah, the industrial action is still on since their demands have not yet been fully realised.
“We believe they will organise themselves and give us the Shs4.3b before the workers can resume work. On this note, I am calling on all the workers in the public universities and Uganda Management Institute to remain at home until this money is given to us,” Betihamah said.
