THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The All-India Federation of University and College Teachers’ Organisation (AIFUCTO) will launch a jail filling agitation in Delhi from March 14 to 16 against the non-implementation of UGC pay revision for  teachers. This was announced by P Raghunath, zonal secretary of AIFUCTO, at a press conference here on Tuesday.

He accused the Central Government for failing in implementing the UGC pay revision recommendations and said that the government, from its beginning, had been trying to sabotage the Sixth Pay Revision that was to be implemented from 2006.  The Central Government had not yet allotted 80 percent of its share as salary arrears and is distancing from the responsibility of wage revision of University-College teachers.

The LDF Government had tried to shoulder the responsibility towards the teaching fraternity by implementing wage revision from March 2010. But the present UDF Government is not trying to pressurise the Central Government to allot the salary arrears.
