University presidents to request injunctions against lecturers

The Committee of University Presidents (CUP) said Wednesday it would request that the National Labor Court (NLC) issue temporary injunction orders against striking lecturers. The court will rule on the issue on Sunday, the day which the CUP has set as the last date before the semester would have to be cancelled. The Senior Lecturers Union on Monday rejected court President Steve Adler's compromise proposal to end their strike. The Finance Ministry had agreed to the proposal.
