Non-govt teachers threaten movement again

Prothom Alo English Desk | Update:

.Teachers and employees of non-government educational institutions on Wednesday threatened to wage movement again if their demands including nationalisation of their institutes are not met immediately, reports UNB.

Bangladesh Non-Government Teachers' and Employees' Forum came up with the threat at a press conference at the National Press Club on Wednesday morning.

Their demands include nationalisation of non-government educational institutions, five per cent annual increment and festival allowance for the Bengali New Year.

Md Saidul Hasan Selim, president of the organisation, said the organisation called off their 20-day demonstrations and hunger strike programme on 29 January following the prime minister's assurance of meeting their demands.

"The prime minister assured us that our demand would be fulfilled, but still there was no announcement in this regard," he said.

The leader announced that they will observe half-day work abstention between 23-27 September in every district and upazila headquarters.

Among others, general secretary of the organisation Md Abdul Khalek addressed the programme.
