FASTOM Intensifies Stir, Demand Salary Hike in Meghalaya

Guwahati: The Federation of All School Teachers of Meghalaya (FASTOM) has vowed to further up its protests against the state administration, requesting that ad hoc school teachers’ salaries be increased.

Instructors also protested in front of the State Secretariat, requesting that ad hoc school teachers’ salaries be increased and their services be improved to a deficit system.

Teachers have also expressed their dissatisfaction with the government’s reluctance to respond in writing to their demands for an increase in teachers’ salary of Rs 18,000 as well as a 5% raise.

Finally, six representatives from FASTOM met with authorities from the education department, including Ambrose Marak and commissioner secretary, IAS BDR Tiwari.

Mayborn Lyngdoh, a member of the executive committee, claimed they did not receive any assurances from the government and that the meeting was an “empty gathering” because nothing productive happened.

FASTOM has also chosen to keep the agitation going. “We are going to continue with our non-cooperation movement, and in this non-cooperation movement, we are not going to participate in any government or educational events,” they stated.
