The weeklong strike by members of Kurukshetra University Non-Teaching Employees Association (KUNTEA) is causing great inconvenience to the students and parents who are coming here for enquiries as there is nobody to attend them especially in the examination branch.
The non-teaching staff are demanding creation of a promotion channel for self-financed and regular employees; annual increment for workers employed since 2003; to retire all superannuated employees; promotions in library and press on the basis of seniority; to complete process of filling regular clerk posts and withdrawal of police cases against KUNTEA leaders. Employees are boycotting their work and demonstrating in front of vice-chancellor's office daily.
Namita Goel, a student, said she had come here to get detail marks sheet (DMC) for submitting it into post graduation college for MBA admission. Similarly, Pradeep Kumar from Jind and Jai Kishan from Fridabad had to go back without getting the DMC.
The vice-chancellor, Lt Gen DDS Sandhu (retd) described the strike by non-teaching employees as illegal, which, he said, is causing inconvenience to a large number students. All those demands, which had already been accepted by the university administration would be fulfilled at the earliest, he added.
The employees should have patience as many of these demands have to be approved by the executive council of the University in its next meeting, the V-C said. He asked the employees to join their duties at the earliest.
