MCD Teachers Call Off Their Strike; To Resume Work On Monday

Updated on 9 July, 2016 at 10:18 am By

After a week of agitation, MCD teachers decided to take back their strike and report to work from Monday, February 8 onwards.

MCD teachers had joined the agitation by municipal workers on February 1 and decided to go on an indefinite strike protesting non-payment of salaries.

MCD teachers along with MCD sanitation workers, doctors and nurses have not been paid their salaries for past many months, with the funding situation only worsening for them thanks to the showdown between Delhi’s AAP Government and BJP-led MCD.

Since February 1, nearly 1.2 million students that are enrolled in 1,860 municipal schools in North and East MCD, have been sent back home as their teachers refused to teach them till they were paid.

After a week of protest Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced a loan of Rs.551 crore to the MCD so the employees could be paid.

He had then urged the protesters to call off their strike, but they had refused to do so till a permanent solution for the same was found.

 

Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung had then met the protesters on February 5 and offered an additional loan of Rs.300 crore and requested them to call off their strike.

After the meeting, though sanitation workers and resident doctors decided to continue their strike, senior doctors, nurses, paramedics and now the teachers have decided to resume work.
