Leaders of Shikkhak Karmachari Oikkyojote, an alliance of teachers and employees of private educational intuitions, on Monday urged the government to cancel the decision of 10 per cent deduction on their retirement benefits and welfare trust.
They also demanded 10 per cent seats for the teachers at parliament for the betterment of the country and urged the government to meet their demands by July 23.
SKO chairman principal Salim Bhuiyan placed a set of demands at a press conference in the capital on behalf of the teachers and employees of the private educational institutions in the country.
The other demands are introducing Baishakh festival bonus, stopping harassment of teachers, nationalisation of all non-MPO (monthly pay order) educational institutions, and a 5 per cent increase in their salaries.
The SKO leaders threatened to go for series of programmes, including human chain, opinion exchange with lawmakers and civil society representatives, from July 24 if their demands are not met by July 23.
