Maharashtra health directorate officials to go on strike, teachers' strike continues.

After the university and college teachers, it is the turn of Maharashtra Health Directorate officials across the state to go on an indefinite strike from tomorrow demanding implementation of Sixth Pay Commission report at the earliest and at par with the Centre.

Even district health officers, deputy directors and other senior officials of the Health directorate all over the state will go on mass leave from tomorrow and all the non-emergency services will come to a halt, the doctors said in a press release issued here today.

"However, on July 21 and 22, emergency services and post-mortem department will be available to the public," senior doctors of the Directorate said.

If Government does not heed to our demands within two days from July 23 onwards, even the emergency services and post-mortems will be stopped completely, the doctors said.

No end in sight for teachers' strike in Maharastra.

The teachers have stopped work' in response to the state-wide agitation call by the Maharashtra Federation of University and College Teachers Organisation (MFUCTO) demanding implementation of the 6th Pay Commission recommendations.

While the agitation has started to affect work, particularly revaluation of papers, at theUniversity of Pune (UoP), the Pune University Teachers Association (Puta) president Atul Bagul said that the situation was created by the state government.

"We have been agitating for the implementation of the recommendations of the pay Commission for quite some time, but the government has failed to take notice," Bagul said, adding, "What was the logic behind excluding only the senior college teachers out of the 6th pay panel benefits whereas the same were extended to their junior college counterparts."

So far, three rounds of talks have been held between the MFUCTO functionaries and the state minister for higher and technical education, Rajesh Tope, as well as secretary to the same department, J S Saharia, on July 15, 16 and 18, but none could lead to a solution.

The teachers have now planned a massive morcha on July 22 at Nashik, where the state cabinet will meet.
