The State council of the Kerala Unaided School Teachers Staff Association will meet Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Leader of the Opposition V.S. Achuthanandan, and MLAs to press for implementation of the commission recommendations on wage revision.
In a press release here on Sunday, the association registered its protest against the government for not taking note of the hardships of unaided teachers even when 10,503 teachers in the aided schools were offered job security and other benefits.
The report of the two-member commission that recommended wage revision of unaided school teachers was submitted in 2008. The report suggested that these teachers be provided the same benefits enjoyed by aided school teachers. But it was not implemented. Instead, a much lesser wage was fixed for the staff of unaided schools, the release said.
Even that wage was not being implemented in most schools. Benefits such as ESI, Provident Fund, vacation salary, job security, and leave were being denied. Most of the managements did not permit organisations in schools, the association alleged.
