DIMAPUR — A conglomeration of teachers’ associations in Nagaland has decided to keep its proposed agitation in abeyance on the request of the Confederation of All Nagaland State Services Employees’ Association (CANSSEA) to mediate with the concerned authorities and settle the matter amicably at the earliest.

The decision was arrived at during a joint meeting of the All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association (ANSTA), the Nagaland Government Higher Secondary School Employees’ Association (NGHSSEA) and the All Nagaland Government Primary Teachers’ Association (ANGPTA) convened by the CANSSEA at its Conference Hall, Kohima, on Tuesday.

The CANSSEA called for the meeting after the aggrieved associations served a two-week ultimatum to the School Education department to immediately disburse the pending salary along with a written assurance not to delay payment in the future, failing which they threatened to initiate a pen-down strike in accordance with the principle of ‘No pay, no work’.

The ultimatum, which started on September 21, is due to expire on October 4.

Meanwhile, the principal director of School Education had cautioned the employees about disciplinary rules as enshrined under Rule 25 of the Nagaland Government Servants Conduct Rules, 1968.
