In a statement issued to the media at the college conference hall on Saturday, the chairman of College Academic Staff Association, Andrew AD Gomez, said they are demanding an increment of their teaching allowance from 30 per cent  to 75 per cent  and a confirmation of the service of all heads of departments of the schools of the college and representation of the its Academic Staff Association at the college’s  Senior Management Team (SMT) and the Governing Council.
