Government-aided school teachers' union and other employees' Union have decided to launch an aggressive agitation campaign against the state government on December 14 for not including government-aided school teachers in the government schools.
The union has also asked the state government to hold a meeting with them within a week. This decision was taken during a meeting of the union at Ramgarhia Senior Secondary School, Miller Ganj, on Saturday.
State president Gurcharan Singh Chahal said if the state government failed to keep its promise, the union would be compelled to hold a massive protest.
Union general secretary NN Saini said Haryana had also merged the aided schools in government schools. "The state government provides 95% aid to schools and management contributes only 5%," he said, adding that there would not be an extra burden on the state government if it merges with the government schools.
District press secretary Davinder Singh Rehan said at least 6,000 posts were lying vacant in the government schools. "Thus this merger would only benefit the state government," he said.
Treasurer KK Joshi, district president Shavinderjeet Kaur, secretary Gurmeet Singh were also present during the meeting.
