Maharashtra Teachers' stir: Decision likely next week

The state government and protesting teachers met on Friday and decided to carry on the talks again on monday.

"Our talks have been positive. But the strike continues,'' said Madhu Paranjpe of the Maharashtra Federation of University and College Teachers' Organisations (MFUCTO).

The strike started on July 14. There is a likelihood that a final decision on whether to continue the strike or get back to class would be taken in the coming week, MFUCTO member Rohini Sivabalan said.

The state and teachers have locked horns over several issues, including the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission pay scales in toto and the unfair treatment meted out to those hired between 1991 and 2000 who have not cleared the NET/SLET examination (an entry-level qualification that was not mandatory at the time).
