21 July, 2017

On 20th July 2017, the newly appointed Chair of the University of Malawi Council, Dr. James Maida invited university management and representatives of staff in the University of Malawi to a “meet and learn” meeting. The meeting took place in the Central Office boardroom. Attending the meeting were representatives of university’s top management and representatives of the University Workers Trade Union (UWTU), Polytechnic Academic Staff Committee on Welfare (PASCOW), Kamuzu College of Nursing A & A Committee on Welfare and Chancellor College Academic Staff Union (CCASU). Speaking during the meeting, Dr. Maida intimated the need to nurture a spirit of honest dialogue within the university structures to ensure speedy and amicable resolution of any issues as they may arise. The meeting was informed that the Council has proposed to set up a standing committee whose mandate will be to ensure speedy resolution of issues. All parties present hailed the meeting as a very important step towards the realisation of industrial harmony in the university. They welcomed the setting up of the committee but asked for more time to consult and reflect on the proposed structure to ensure that once set up, the committee should have the backing of all stakeholders.
