On Tuesday this week, UBASSU and UBSU together with the UB management signed on the dotted line for the salary increment of eight percent across all bands. “All the undersigned parties have jointly agreed that management shall implement a salary adjustment for members of UBASSU and UBSU. Management shall implement an 8% salary adjustment to all UBASSU and UBSU,” acting vice chancellor David Katzke said.
