The joint council of employees and the Syndicate members of Calicut University have reached a compromise formula to end the eight-day staff strike.

The employees of the university are ready to end the strike if Vice-chancellor M Abdul Salam agrees to take immediate action on the formula.

A meeting of the Syndicate has formed a subcommittee to find an amicable solution to the issue. They also held discussions with the employees’ leaders. The subcommittee is likely to submit a report to the vice-chancellor on Tuesday.

“We hope that the issues between the vice-chancellor and the employees can be settled amicably,” Syndicate member V P Abdul Hameed said.

Local MLA K N A Khader is also planning to meet the Vice-Chancellor on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the employees boycotted all work on Monday affecting the functioning of all departments of the varsity.

The university postponed the meeting of the principals and managers of the colleges affiliated to it in 2012-13 and 2013- 2014 academic years, scheduled for Tuesday. The third phase of MEd counselling scheduled for Wednesday has also been put off.

The Calicut University Teachers Association has urged the officials of the university to end the strike which has been creating immense difficulties for the students of the university and the academic curriculum of the varsity.

The members of the association further added that the university should agree to the basic demands of the employees so that the issues can be settled in an amicable manner.
