The five per cent increase agreed to between the West Indies Group of University Teachers (WIGUT) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) has been formally ratified. The University Grants Committee Meeting ratified the increase at a meeting on Monday at the Hilton T&T Conference Centre, St Ann’s, according to a news release from the UWI. The meeting was chaired by Finance Minister Winston Dookeran.
