Maharashtra teachers' strike still on. "Continue talks with Tope": CM tells MFUCTO

The Maharashtra Federation of University and College Teachers’ Organisations (MFUCTO) will continue their strike even as Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has directed them to have a meeting with the minister for higher education, on Friday.

“We discussed our demands on the Sixth Pay Commission and NET/SET conditions with the Chief Minister, Guardian Minister Ajit Pawar, State Minister for Higher Education Rajesh Tope and State Finance Minister Dilip Walse-Patil on Thursday. We have been asked to continue the talks on Friday with Tope,” said CR Sadashivan, president, MFUCTO. Starting the ‘cease-work’ agitation on July 14, the MFUCTO had decided to intensify their agitation on July 20 after their talks failed for the third time then.

Later, the teachers took out morchas at various places including at the Nashik General Hospital where a special cabinet meeting was being held in July. Around 50,000 college teachers across the state are on strike called by the MFUCTO. It is being supported by non-teaching staff. The teachers have a list of 32 demands, the prime demand being implementation of the SPC recommendations.

The college & university teachers who are on strike must complete their inconclusive talks and call off the strike as soon as possible and re-start the academic schedule and make up for the loss.The state govt should forthwith conclude its hesitancy and help out the academics to get their legitimate demands fulfilled in consonance with the UGC stipulations.This arrangement alone would satisfy the contending parties, and also enable colleges and universities to function in an atmosphere of bonhomie.
