SICHE staff plan sit-in protest today over non removal of college director

Lectures at the Solomon Islands College of Higher Education face a likely cancellation today as staff of the college say they will pursue a sit-in protest over a decision by the college council not to remove the college director, Gabriel Taloikwai.

It is understood both college staff union bodies, known as CHENLA and CHENASA are adamant about a sit in protest despite the case being referred to the Trade Dispute Panel.

Chairman of the College Council, Northwest Choiseul MP Clement Kengava last Friday discouraged staff from taking a sit-in protest as it would affect innocent students.

But speaking for academic staff members of the College, CHENLA president Duddley Hoala says they want to mount an action that has impact to show they are serious about their demand to remove the college director.

The college staff have petitioned the removal of director, Gabriel Taloikwai, accusing him of misconduct in the administration of his duties.

A full meeting of the college council earlier found such allegations as having no basis, and referred the matter to the Trade Dispute Panel.
