?The revolution lives on,? said President of the University of Guyana Students Society (UGSS), Joshua Griffith, in wake of the end of industrial action at the University of Guyana (UG).UGSS President,Joshua GriffithGriffith in an invited comment to this publication yesterday said that although students are grateful that UG has returned to some degree of normalcy, there are still many concerns that must be addressed at the tertiary institution.?Students are appreciative that we can finally have all classes resume, but at the same time though, the effort is to ensure that the students are not affected severely. We are approaching the Academic Board, where decisions will be made on how the semester progresses in terms of duration and how it will treat with different courses that haven?t been running,? Griffith outlined yesterday.Although some courses were being offered during the five-week long industrial action at UG there were some lecturers who continued to offer regular classes. However, the majority of classes, this publication understands, were not being held.The industrial action was reportedly the result of a breakdown of negotiations between the University workers? unions ? the University of Guyana Senior Staff Association and the University of Guyana Workers Union ? and the University?s Negotiating Team.Although the UGSS was not opposed to the workers embracing their right to strike, the student body was however not fond of the resulting situation characterised by too many classes not being held.The industrial action was called off yesterday after an agreement was inked between the Unions and the University Administration based on an interim agreement which,[url=$%&/]wholeslae cheap nfl jerseys china[/url], among other things, will see workers being afforded a 10 per cent salary increase.But even with the end of the industrial action, Griffith asserted that the paramount concerns still faced by students are issues such as the dates for examinations and when their grades will be made available.?Students have planned their lives and this disruption would affect that and we are trying our best to see how we can make the best of the whole situation,? the UGSS President intimated.About one week ago,[url=$%&/villanova-wildcats-3-josh-hart-navy-blue-basketball-stitched-ncaa-jersey-tq.html]Josh Hart College Jersey[/url], the UGSS met with the University?s Administration to discuss measures that were being put in place to address its many concerns,[url=$%&/]NFL Jerseys Sale[/url], which range from academic to infrastructural issues. The UGSS has plans to meet again this week with the Administration for an update, Griffith disclosed.?There was some amount of progress, but we are not satisfied, and so we will be advocating for more progress going forward,? said the UGSS President who pointed out that a call to have the concerns addressed at UG will not simply end because industrial action has been called off.Through #UGRevolution, an initiative of the UGSS, efforts are being made by students to highlight, with a view of addressing, the prevailing substandard and poorly maintained facilities at UG.  These concerns, according to Griffith, have been evident for decades and have remained constant because of the lack of financing.Moreover, he is adamant that the #UGRevolution is a conscious effort by students to demand improved facilities against the backdrop of increased tuition. The manifestation of the initiative has constituted action such as student rallies, the mounting of banners of shame and even multiple campus shutdown tactics.?We remain steadfast in our struggle for basic facilities. The #UGRevolution is a student effort to rebuild our campus,? said Griffith at a forum last month. And he has since asserted that ?I wish to state unequivocally that all actions taken thus far by students, led by the UGSS, were to bring forcibly to the fore our utter disdain at the prevailing substandard conditions at the University of Guyana.?Although attempts to address some of its concerns, such as moves to improve the physical environment at the UG campus,[url=$%&/tigers-8-justin-upton-grey-new-cool-base-stitched-mlb-jersey-28-qc.html]Justin Upton Tigers Jersey[/url], by the Ministry of Public Works, the Parks Commission and other such entities, were recognized,[url=$%&/]Authentic Jerseys Cheap[/url], Griffith has insisted ?that this generation of students will not be dissuaded by cosmetic changes.  Unless our demands are closely coupled with sustainable commitments, the students will not relent in their struggle for a better University.??It is not going to end because the strike ended, the revolution is not even related to the strike…It did have to do with getting classes to resume, but even beyond that,[url=$%&/]Cheap Jerseys From China[/url], it is working towards students? activism and students speaking up and speaking out and demanding the standards that we deserve,? asserted Griffith yesterday.As part of its efforts to advocate for the return of normalcy at UG, the UGSS had disclosed plans to seek legal advice, an undertaking that was being channelled through a UGSS Special Committee that was created for just this purpose. In commenting on the development in this regard, Griffith said that he is awaiting a report from the Committee which will ascertain whether there is yet a need for legal support.
