Association of University of the South Pacific Staff President, Elizabeth Fong

The Association of University of the South Pacific Staff will have their consultation meeting next Tuesday to decide on their next step.

While speaking to fijivillage News, Association President, Elizabeth Fong says the association cannot do anything now after the council reappointed Professor Pal Ahluwalia to be the Vice Chancellor again for USP, and the Staff Paper was also not allowed on the agenda.

Fong says unfortunately the council's decision goes against what they stand for.

The Association President further says they recommended that the Vice Chancellor position be advertised and those seeking applicants seek qualified people from the region for the position.

Fong says the USP Management refuses to discuss or negotiate the salary adjustment for 2019-2023 and the final course of action was to bring the matter to the USP Council for resolution in preference to industrial action.
