ThE Government has announced that it will present the 2020 National Budget in Parliament on October 7. The presentation of this budget comes in the wake of the retrenchment of 199 non-academic workers at the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) last month.

In May last year, 59 workers were also retrenched by the university. All these retrenchments have come about because of the drastic decrease in the budget allocation to UTT by about $200 million. The Government provides the bulk of funding for the operation of the national university.
