The strike at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill Campus, has started to affect on-site teaching.

Some students turned up for classes on Thursday morning only to discover that classrooms were still locked. Bathrooms are also locked.

Classes are now online as the West Indies Group of University Teachers (WIGUT) has agreed to continue teaching.

Workers at the Cave Hill Campus went on strike on Wednesday, protesting the long delay in receiving a salary increase, dating back to August last year.  

UWI says it has correspondence from March 2023 when it first engaged the Ministry of Education on the matter. (SAT)
