Seeking justice from the department in-charge, All Nagaland Ad-hoc Teachers’ Union (ANATU) has demanded regularization order to all the qualified ad-hoc teachers at the earliest. Expressing resentment over the ‘step-motherly’ treatment from the department Neizevotuo Nakhro, president ANATU said the ministerial staff that underwent suitability test with the ad-hoc teachers in September to October last had been given regularization order whereas the result and regularization process of the ad-hoc teachers were still in pending.
ANATU demanded that all ad-hoc teachers should be given equal benefits as granted to the ministerial staff and arrears to be given to the teachers from the date on which the regularization orders of the ministerial staff were issued. Meanwhile, ANATU central body held a joint meeting with ANATU Tuensang unit and TDATA on May 28 and unanimously resolved to work together.
A sum of `200 as membership fees would be collected from all the ad-hoc teachers of Tuensang district who had undergone suitability test in 2010, added ANATU.
