Sir Hilary: Job fear


Share post:

There is a certain level of anxiety and fear among 800-plus workers at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill Campus following the $42 million budget cut  by Government.
Principal and pro-vice chancellor Sir Hilary Beckles said the budget cuts placed the UWI in a similar position to the early 1990s when financing was also slashed.
He promised, however, there would be no axing of the approximately 873 full-time, part-time and special project staff employed by the university. Over 70 per cent of the budget goes to wages.
The professor made the comments during the official opening and naming of the Keith Hunte Hall of residence in Black Rock, St Michael.
