Nagpur: The NMC Teachers’ Association has decided to launch an intense agitation to press for its long pending demand for early payment of arrears of Sixth Pay Commission and Dearness Allowance (DA) the civic body has consistently failed to pay since the past ten years (from January 1, 2006). Previously also, the Association staged numerous agitations and made representations to various authorities but to no avail.
Disgusted and disappointed by the ‘negligent attitude of concerned authorities’ towards demands of the NMC Teachers’ Association, the office-bearers and members held a meeting under the leadership of President Rajesh Gavre at NMC’s Civil Lines Office and deliberated on further course of action. A proposal to launch a united fight to press for its long pending demand was approved in the meeting. An Action Committee would be formed in the next meeting and all the associations will come together for launching a united fight.
The meeting was attended among others by NMC Teachers’ Association President Rajesh Gavre, Devrao Mandavkar, Malvinder Kaur Lamba, Madhukar Bhoyar, Dashrath Mankar, Rashtriya Nagpur Employees Association’s Domaji Bhadang, NMC Employees Association’s Jammu Anand, Narendra Barai, Nandkishore Bhoite, NMC Women Employees Sanghatana’s Sushma Dhore and others.
