 SHILLONG: Irked by the adamant attitude of the government in responding to their demands, the Meghalaya Colleges Non-Teaching Employees Association (MCNTEA) has decided to go on a cease work stir from August 29 till September 3.

In a meeting held at Madan Iewrynghep at Fire brigade here on Saturday, the MCNTEA unanimously decided to cease work from August 29 till September 3 after the state government failed to respond to their demands for pending arrears.

It may be reminded that the association had observed black flag day and pen down strike earlier and also proposed to organise a rally on August 24 but the procession to the State Secretariat however did not materialize as permission for the march was denied by the authorities.

It was informed that the association will observe their agitation from August 29 till September 3 at various institutions in the city which includes PGT College, St Anthony’s College, Shillong College, Shillong Commerce and St Edmunds College.“Our cease work will be followed by a procession from Fire Brigade to Meghalaya Secretariat on September 5 and unlike the other day, this time I think, we will be allowed to carry on with the procession”, MCNTEA Assistance general secretary, P Majaw told reporters here on Saturday.

Majaw also mentioned that in the last two weeks, the Director of the Higher and Technical Education had invited them (association) for discussions on the issue but the outcome was undesirable.

“It is just a tactic adopted by the state government to disrupt the strike, but we will not be fooled and will not stop demanding”, added Majaw.

The on-going protest will only come to a halt after the government releases pending arrears to them (MCNTEA) following the implementation of revised pay scales last year, added Majaw.
