CTA SUPPORTS JCC STRIKE CALL
Srinagar, May 6: Appalled over the State Government’s statements in which it had termed the strike call of government employees as “illegal”, the College Teachers Association has extended their support to the strike call given by JCC on May 8 and 9.
In a statement, the CTA said, “when all other peaceful means do not entail the desired results, strike is an only option left for the employees.”
“It is unfortunate that the strike call given by employees union of J&K to safeguard their legitimate rights of the employees has been labeled as illegal. We support the strike call of May 8 and 9 given by the JCC to draw the attention of the Government,” the statement reads.
The CTA asked the State Government to fulfill the genuine demands of the employees.
“The age of sixty for State cadre IAS officers, JK Bank employees who belong to an organization which is a Government Company under section 619 of the Companies Act and is also a public authority where major decisions are taken by the State Government is a stark reality of discrimination among those who are otherwise similarly circumstanced as employees of J&K Government,” President CTA Prof Tariq Ashai said in a statement.
Ashai said the superannuation age limit of 65 years in case of the Central Universities is forcing the college teachers to join these universities. “The CTA never believes in confrontation and has firm faith in reconciliation. While the Association supports the call given by JCC to draw the attention of the Government but at the same time we request the JCC leaders to positively respond to the statement given by Senior Minister Ali Muhmamad Sagar for negotiations and an amicable settlement,” he said.
