Maharastra college teachers to go on indefinite strike from July 14

Around 30,000 University and college teachers across Maharashtra will go on indefinite 'cease work' strike from July 14 to express their resent and protest against the state government's failure to implement their several long pending demands.

Under the banner of the Maharashtra Federation of University and college Teachers' organisations (MFUCTO), a conglomeration of 10 teachers' unions in the state, the teachers will stop working from July 14 on an indefinite strike, Prof C R Sadasivan, the Federation president told media here today.

"The strike is to make the government realise that our demands like implementation of 6th Pay Commission, resolving the long-pending demands of the academic community including among others the problem of National Eligibility Test (NET) and State Eligibility Test (SET) qualification condition wrongly introduced on about 10,000 teachers retrospectively are to be taken seriously by the state," Sadasivan said.

The Maharashtra state has not implemented Sixth pay Commission revised pay scales for teachers in spite of Central financial assistance communicated through directions of the Ministry of Human Resource Development and University Grants Commission to do so and pay 40 per cent of arrears immediately and claim the amount by March 31 this year, he said.
