Chennai: In view of upcoming board exams, the school education department on Wednesday has revoked the suspension of over 1,100 teachers who have participated in the recent strike.

Pressing for several demands including to continue with the old pension scheme, the teachers and government employees under the banner of Joint Action Council for Tamil Nadu Teachers Organisations and Government Employees Organisations (Jactto-Geo) resorted to indefinite strike from January 22.

 

The school education department has suspended the teachers whoever got arrested during the agitations.

Fearing the transfer and disciplinary actions, most of the teachers returned to work before the strike was officially called off on January 30.

However, the suspended teachers could not resume working and the representatives held talks with the government to revoke the suspension.

"Due to the upcoming board exams to classes 10 and 12, the chief educational officers should revoke the suspension of the arrested teachers. They should be allowed to resume work with pending disciplinary action against them," said V.C. Rameswaramurugan in a circular to chief educational officers on Wednesday.

 

Over 550 teachers from school education directorate were suspended during the strike.

The elementary education directorate has informed the district educational officers that if the teachers post still vacant they should be allowed to resume their work in the same schools.

Earlier, the department has warned that they would not be allowed to work in the same department if they don't return to work by January 28.

The district officials have put 577 teachers from primary and middle schools under suspension for getting arrested during the protests.
