CE interns not paid allowance

CE interns not paid allowance

2012 Dec 06

Over 100 interns from Colleges of Education (CE) have not been paid their monthly allowance for the last few months, the Ceylon Teachers’ Service Union (CTSU) charged today.
Speaking to Ceylon Today, CTSU General Secretary, Mahinda Jayasinghe, said that students who successfully complete their A/L examinations and who are interested in teaching, go through the Colleges of Education for further studies.
The students intern during their third year, and are paid a monthly allowance of Rs 3000 for their basic needs, Jayasinghe said.
“Rs 3000 is barely enough for anything. While not even being paid adequately, their payments have been completely cut off during the months of October and November. However, the authorities have got the interns to sign their payment slips which states that they were paid, though they have actually not been paid,” he said.
Jayasinghe stated that payments are usually made after the payment slip is signed, though this has not happened for the last two months.
He urged the educational authorities to rectify this issue immediately. (Ceylon Today Online)
