As many as 150 contractual teachers working at the Chandigarh College of Engineering and Technology (CCET), Sector 26 sat on an indefinite strike on Thursday, opposing the move of the college to relieve one of the lecturers who was working since five years.
Demanding the college and the Chandigarh Administration to reinstate the relieved teacher as soon as possible, they said that they will hold a nation-wide protest, if the matter is not resolved at the earliest.
Teachers said that 100 per cent college stuff are contractual employees, of which 37 are teaching staff and around 120 are non-teaching staff. They on strike alleged that the principal has asked one of the teachers to leave without issuing any notice.
A striking teacher said, “The letter mentions that the college does not require his services any more since a new teacher has been appointed on a regular services and he has been asked to leave with immediate effect.”
The teachers demanded that since the entire staff of the CCET is on contractual basis and the teachers have been working for over 12 years, there should be policy to adjust them accordingly, plus there should be enough security for the teachers.
