Speaking outside the ministry, Lin Po-yi (林柏儀), director of the union’s organization department, said that to force teachers to accept having their salaries cut by half, the university has since August “maliciously” not paid salaries to about 30 teachers who rejected the pay cuts.
As of Monday, the university owed teachers salaries for three months,” he said.
The union estimates that it owes about 30 teachers NT$10 million (US$345,244), he said.
