Protest against dismissal of employees working in Aligarh Muslim University
Aligarh: The All India University Employees Confederation strongly protests against dismissal of 29 employees working in the Aligarh Muslim University Press. The Confederation has termed the action of the University as Illegal, Inhuman and high handed. While addressing Press conference Mr. M.B. Sajjan, Secretary General of All India University Employees confederation said that before ordering the retrenchment of the poor strata of employees, the University authorities must have thought that families of the victims will be on the road.
Aligarh Muslim University is a renowned and reputed Institution in the sphere of higher education of India and such cruel action was not expected from the authorities of this University Mr. Sajjan said and requested the authorities to immediately withdraw the order of retrenchment followed by posting them in alternative vacant posts and paying their back wages from the date of their retrenchment.
Sajjan further opposed the sudden eviction of six employees from the University quarters. This action is most Un-democratic and anti-employees. He urged upon to immediately restore their residences and do justice to the employees. He also urged upon to raise the fixed pay school teachers salary from 4800/- to 9600/- as they are handling more work load than the permanent teachers.
