Urgent Communication from GS 25/07/12
Congratulations to our members on the great achievement once again. The united and determined movement launched by the AIFUCTO for the payments of arrears by the Govt. of India without insisting on the enhancement of the retirement age to 65 years has now been approved by the Union Cabinet. Our rallies, protracted follow up and the Court Arrest Programmes have made it possible.
We thank Hon’ble President Sri Pranab Mukherjee & Hon’ble Minister, HRD Sri Kapil Sibal for their support. We record our thanks to the Members of Parliament who have lent valuable support.
In view of the development, the Secretariat, after considering the General Secretary’s consultations with office bearers and NEC members throughout the country, decided not to organize the HUNGER STRIKE in Delhi on 28, 29 and 30th August, as decided earlier by the Patna NEC meeting. We understand that the decisions regarding matters relating to different issues including anomalies, RC/OC, Ph.D Regulations and CAS points system may soon be notified by the UGC.
The Secretariat will review the entire situation and a NEC meeting will be held in September, 2012 to assess the same and decide future course of action.
States might have state related issues and so may decide about holding the state program on 25th August, 2012.
Urgent Communication from GS 23/06/12
To Our most respected former leaders, activists and members
I take this opportunity to write to you expressing our deep sense of gratitude, respect and love on the occasion of your dear AIFUCTO completing fifty years. We know you cherish a special sentiment, pride and emotion when you think of AIFUCTO. We know you remember the glorious legacy of AIFUCTO.
The present generation of members, activists and leadership acknowledge your contribution, dedication and sacrifice in building up the movement. We have seen as junior members how you negotiated many crises, gallantly fought for the causes of teachers. Many of you worked for a pittance ,but that never deterred you to wage many a battle and today we enjoy decent scales of pay.
Friends, we draw great confidence and follow in your footsteps. We seek your wise counsel whenever we face a dilemma or face a problem. That is the true spirit of the AIFUCTO movement.
We have started the GOLDEN JUBILEE celebration and cordially invite you to participate in the programs being held at unit, state, regional and national levels.
I request you to write your memoirs, experiences and suggestions to me so that we can discuss them and get directions for future course of movement. We shall publish them in our journal, website and other platforms.
I understand in no other Organisations so many retired teachers take active interest and participate in conferences and meetings.
We know your love, affection and guidance will strengthen our movement. I invite all of you to the central GOLDEN JUBILEE program which will be notified in Teachers’ Movement and our website-
Kindly keep in touch with your local leadership. We have instructed all affiliates to contact you so that any program they hold be blessed with your glorious presence. LONG LIVE AIFUCTO
