Temporary Suspension of Nikhil Utkal Primary Teachers’ Federation Strike Raises Hopes for New Year’s Gift

2 min read

Bhubaneswar: The Nikhil Utkal Primary Teachers’ Federation has decided to suspend their statewide strike until December 2023, following discussions with the Chief Minister’s Office. During the meeting, various demands were addressed, including the inclusion of ex-cadre teachers in the elementary cadre, grade pay increases, the establishment of a service cadre for Art teachers and PETs, filling job vacancies, and reinstating the old pension system.

This temporary halt to the strike has sparked anticipation among teachers, with some speculating that they might receive a New Year’s gift. It’s worth noting that nine out of ten associations participated in the meeting, while the Primary School Teachers’ Association (PISTA) did not join and expressed opposition to the decision to put the strike on hold. PISTA’s president, Brahmananda Moharana, mentioned that their future course of action would be decided at an upcoming meeting.

The Nikhil Utkal Primary Teachers’ Federation originally initiated their cease-work strike on September 8 and had been staging protests in front of block education offices throughout the state.
