TINSUKIA: The Tinsukia District Committee of Asom Prathamik TET Uttirno Sikshak Samaj (APTETUSS), while expressing solidarity with his parent body, refused to sign the new agreement sent by Samagra Siksha Abhiyan Mission, Assam and requested the withdrawal of the order SSA / Misc/Esstt Matters/542/2003/2645 of 24.9.2020. The last order of the mission invited teachers to sign the agreement on or before October 20, otherwise their “salary issue must be dealt with after the signing of the agreement.” This clearly shows that teachers will not receive their salaries if they do not sign the agreement. Major repairs to 59 public primary schools throughout Goa – most in remote locations – will be launched in 2020-21. While 30 of the schools are in North Goa, the rest are from South Goa. The state cabinet on Tuesday approved the government`s proposal to use 120 D. of its plan fund for the payment of salaries to teachers of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) in the tax20-21. The Centre has not yet paid the fund for the payment of its salaries under the plan. The firm immediately sanctioned Rs40 believe for the goal. In a memorandum to the Director of the Mission, presented on Saturday by the Mission Coordinator of the Tinsukia District, UNITIS stated that at a time when the Decision of the State Cabinet brought a glimmer of hope to the state of service of several thousand contract instructors by providing additional services, the last mission of the SSA had come as a bolt for teachers.
It states that the Central Committee presented to the Commissioner and the Minister of Education, as well as to the Chief Secretary “Birodh Barnana Patra”, but no consideration was given to their representation. The memo stated that teachers would abstain from the unilateral agreement until the discussion on representation and that no pressure tactics would be applied to teachers until then. Following the cabinet`s decision, the Ministry of Primary Education issued a statement on July 1, 2020. Subsequently, in August, the SSA gave the teachers of the contract and the state pool the mandate to sign a new agreement. But teachers refuse to sign the new agreement because it will disrupt the continuation of their period of service, which hinders the regularization of their employment. Public schools across the state must ensure that the seven needles of Operation Kayakalp are completed by March 31, 2020, according to the UP government. Earlier, on 26 May 2020, the State Office had decided to provide additional benefits to 29,701 auxiliary teachers working as contract teachers in lower and secondary primary schools and to 11,206 assistant teachers who were pool teachers in lower/secondary primary schools under the SSA (Sarba Siksha Abyanhi).
