Word has been circulating around the UPNG campus that NASA will stop work over the non-payment of its members.
However, President Emmanuel Gorea told Loop PNG that: “Going on strike will be our last resort, if we have exhausted all other avenues”.
“Some of us have not been paid last year and this year,” Gorea confirms. But discussions over their salary issues are already underway with the UPNG administration.
The president stresses that they want the students to complete their first semester as they ‘have been through a lot already’.
