Imphal, July 7:

The All Manipur College Teachers Association has resolved to resume the suspended cease work strike.

A statement said that the decision to call off the suspended Work Strike scheduled from 12th February, 2020 which was announced by AMCTA honouring the announcement of the  Chief Minister made through media on  February 11, 2020, was taken during an emergency executive meeting held today through online mode.

The meeting also resolved to urge the Government of Manipur to implement the 7th UGC Pay Scales and UGC Regulations 2018 in toto by adopting a clear cabinet decision before reopening of the colleges of the state. 

The AMCTA also threatens democratic movement as and when the colleges are reopened if the Government fails to implement the 7th UGC Pay Scales and UGC Regulations 2018 during the lock-out period. 

The decisions have been made since the college teachers are not in the position of launching the strike/agitation at present as the colleges are closed due to pandemic Covid-19 outbreak while the AMCTA has been keeping a close watch over the outbreak of pandemic. It may be reminded that the AMCTA has already urged the Government of Manipur to implement the 7th UGC Pay Scales to the college by adopting a clear Cabinet decision which was approved in principal by Cabinet setting dated 11.2.2020 during the lockout period submitting letters on 26th June 2020, the statement said.
