After a month-long strike that ended in August, the teachers of Mumbai University and its affiliated colleges are yet to get Sixth Pay Commission salaries.
Colleges have not yet been oriented on how to go about the process of implementing the new pay scales.
“Unlike other universities in the state, Mumbai University is yet to form committees or conduct orientation camps on pay fixation,” said university senate member, Madhu Paranjape.
Mumbai University vice chancellor (VC) Chandra Krishnamurthy said that these orientation camps will be held in eight zones on November 7 and 8.
All colleges have also been asked to submit proposals on the pay scales of their teachers by November 5.
Senate members said that 30 teachers on contract were set to lose their jobs because the university has delayed their approvals.
“Teachers with MPhil qualifications appointed between 2006 and 2008 on contractual basis are yet to be regularised,” said Paranjape.
Teachers have threatened to go on a day-long hunger strike on November 2 if the issue is not resolved by the end of this week.
Senate members also said that the committee set up to look into the appointment of Vilas Shinde, Controller of Examinations, three months ago, has not yet submitted its report.
The members allege that Shinde is not qualified for the post. However, the VC said that the report would be submitted before the next senate meeting in December.
