Tamil Nadu strike: HC tells employees to resume work from now

Tamil Nadu strike: HC tells employees to resume work from now”

The Tamil Nadu government had on Thursday informed the Madras high court that a total of 33,487 government teachers, affiliated to six unions, were abstaining from work across the state.

The Joint Action Council of Teachers Organisations and Government Employees Organisations had called for a strike from September 7 to have the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission implemented and the old pension scheme restored, among other demands, PTI reported.

On Wednesday, Justice N Kirubakaran told The Times of India that the period of absence has been declared as unauthorised absence. The department has initiated disciplinary proceedings against the primary school teachers engaged in protest.

Over 33,487 primary school teachers had not reported for duty as of Wednesday, given six recognized unions along other un-recognized unions taking part in the agitation. Teachers who are on strike and boycotting classes are being criticised.

It went on to clarify that private school teachers were not participating in the protests, but added that their pay was lower than that of government school teachers. The judge said that the court was not against legitimate protests but it will not tolerate when it is affecting the children.

Justice Kirubakaran made the observations on a petition by advocate A P Suryaprakasam, seeking a direction to the state government to form an expert committee to prepare students who scored low marks in NEET (National Eligibility- cum-Entrance Test) and provide them moral support. In order to take measures against these protesting teachers, he asked the state government to file a report by September 18. He said that only five state board students have secured medical seats and the teachers should be ashamed of this fact and should know their responsibility.
