UNIVERSITY OF LIBERIA FACULTY ANNOUNCES DISENGAGEMENT FROM ACADEMY ACTIVITIES

Date:

MONROVIA – The University of Liberia Faculty and Staff Association’s recent announcement of disengagement from academic activities at the University of Liberia highlights a significant development in the ongoing issues between the association and the university’s administration.

One of the central demands put forth by ULFASA is the payment of part-time lecturers in United States Dollars, citing the original contract terms and requesting alignment with the prevailing government exchange rate if paid in Liberian Dollars. The association has made it clear that this issue is non-negotiable, indicating a firm stance on the matter.

Furthermore, the call for an independent audit of the part-time lecturer payroll demonstrates a commitment to transparency and fair treatment of staff. The emphasis on digitalizing staff systems reflects a push for modernization and efficiency within the university’s administrative processes.

The decision to halt academic activities until these demands are met underscores the seriousness of the situation and the association’s determination to see their requests addressed. Taking such a stance during the ongoing online student registration period signals the depth of concern and urgency felt by the ULFASA members.

The outcome of this situation will not only impact the immediate operations of the University of Liberia but also sets a precedent for how academic institutions handle labor-related issues and the importance of addressing staff concerns promptly and effectively to maintain a harmonious work environment.
