Students at the University of Guyana yesterday blocked the entrance to the tertiary institution in support of lecturers and other staff seeking increased salaries.
The students also called for a better environment at the university including an up-to-date library, improved security, free Internet access, better laboratories and modern classroom technologies.
The university has appealed to staff members to end their industrial action.
The workers are demanding a 60 per cent salary increase.
However, the university has said it can only increase salaries if government increases its subvention, and if it decreases part-time expenditure by 50 per cent, reduces programme offerings with low enrolment and maintains an increase in tuition fees.
