“As you may not be aware, we have not been paid our salaries and allowances for the months of June and July 2019, and this is creating serious economic hardship for employees and their families. This situation has also made it difficult for instructors to commute to campuses of the University daily,” the communication stated.
“Predicated upon the aforementioned, we are requesting the University of Liberia’s Administration to immediately make payments of our salaries and allowances on or before Friday, July 19, 2019. A further delay to this request will lead to the faculty and employees’ disengagement from all academic activities, including, the administering of the final exams for 2nd Semester 2018-2019,” the communication also stated.
Following that communication, the aggrieved (Concerned) faculty members convened another mass meeting yesterday, July 23rd, 2019 which was a mass meeting held ever to mount pressure on the UL’s Administration to look into their demands.

The UL Administration further stated that it was disbursing one month salary for the month of June and urged all faculty members to immediately return to classes.
In another release issued from the UL’s Administration, it appealed to the faculty to remain in class and that modality was being worked on to pay them for the month of June. The Administration in that release admitted to the delay in the salary disbursement of the faculty members but begged for time, adding that by Wednesday, June 24th, 2019, it was going to pay for the one month.
Meanwhile, during yesterday’s meeting, the concerned UL Faculty members resolved on four counts. One was for the University of Liberia-UL Administration to give their June and July pay, including allowances and benefits of all employees on or before Friday, July 19, 2019.
Secondly, that all monies deducted from the faculty and employees’ salaries amount which are owed by the University are to be paid in full, and that thirdly, that the University of Liberia be exempted from the Pro-poor salary deduction scheme, and lastly, that Adjunct Professors/Instructors receive their salaries, allowances and benefits as per the time stipulated in the contracts with the University.
