Sequel to the suspension of the five (5) months old strike by the Non-Teaching Staff Unions, the prolonged non-payment of salaries for the past four (4) months, the absence of students on campus, and the precarious economic hardship experienced within the University community.

This directive, however, excludes those rendering essential duties and staff serving in the offices of Principal Officers.
The University Management identifies with the difficult times experienced by its esteemed workforce and hope for a turnaround within the University Community and the educational sector at large.
