“The cabinet committee on eliminating salary discriminations will sit soon over the teachers’ demands,” the minister said after the teachers announced to go on an indefinite strike from 11 January to realise their demands.
Nahid said the committee meeting will be held when the Finance Minister will give time as he is its head. “We hope the teachers will have a credible solution,” he said adding, “Our ministry is working relentlessly for an immediate solution to the crisis.”
The demands of the teachers include the removal of discriminations in the 8th Pay Scale and retaining selection grade and time scale, according to UNB. -Mithun
