DUTA calls for a pen-down strike

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) has called for a pen-down strike on May 7 along with a public meeting and dharna between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. outside the Arts Faculty, North Campus. The strike is being organised to bring to focus the alleged denial of promotions to teachers since 2009.

DUTA has, in a letter addressed to V-C Yogesh Tyagi, sought an urgent appointment with him. The teachers wrote: “We had taken up the issue of zero promotions with you over a year ago, and the issues were highlighted by our elected members during meetings. Unfortunately, the DUTA could not get an appointment with you for over 10 months and could not move towards a coherent resolution.”

They added that DU becoming a “no-promotion zone” had led to “frustration” amongst teachers. DUTA also pointed out that the formation of governing bodies in 28 DU colleges aided by the Delhi government is “long overdue”.
