Junior College Teachers in Mumbai, Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts of Maharashtra will stage a protest on Tuesday at Azad Maidan to press their various demands. 

Under the Mumbai Junior Colleges Teachers’ Union (MJCTU), nearly 1,200 teachers claimed that they have not got their salaries since last three years and the Maharashtra government has failed to make any payment despite several protests. The teachers working in government-aided colleges - with focus on students from First Year Junior College (FYJC) and Second Year Junior College (SYJC) – are pressurised to shift to part-time posts without any pay scale. 

MJCTU President Amar Singh highlighted that teachers have not been paid their salaries for the last three years. “They don’t get approval from the state government if they are promoted to a permanent post,” said Singh. 

Earlier on December 11, 2019, the teachers had organised a march to the Mumbai Divisional Board at Vashi to press their demands. The teachers have also asked for the appointment of a full-time deputy director of education for Mumbai region and chairman for Mumbai Divisional Board.
