Pending dues: Teachers threaten to boycott evaluation work
Teachers, who evaluated UP Board’s class X and XII answer-sheets in 2014, have decided to boycott the work this year if their pending dues were not cleared by the end of the ongoing board exams.
At least 35% of evaluators are yet to receive the evaluation allowance. The teachers have also demanded online clearance of dues. UP Madhyamik Sikshak Sangh’s Raghuraj Singh said that teachers deployed as invigilators in board exams were yet to receive their inspection, practical exams and evaluation dues along with other expenses. He warned that teachers would boycott the exams if the dues were not cleared within next 15 days.
He further said that earlier UP Board authorities had accepted teachers’ demands, including evaluation allowance. However, it was never fulfilled. He added that teachers would boycott the first day of evaluation work and apprise the district magistrate(DM) of their problems
