Kozhikode: As many as 15,000 teaching and non-teaching staff of aided schools across the state are planning to launch a strike in protest against the delay in approval of their appointment owing to the implementation of the differently abled quota reservation.

The strike has been announced by the Unapproved Teachers Movement Kerala (UTMK), a collective of around 5,000 such teachers. Reportedly, the teachers and non-teachers will observe a fast on the ‘Pravesanolsavam’ day.

There is an order by the apex court’s division bench directing to implement the reservation for differently abled and grant approval for the appointment of existing teachers. There is also an interim order, dated May 15, that instructs against the removal of current employees as part of the reservation process, UTMK said.

However, as the government has failed to take necessary action over the court orders, we have decided to move ahead with the strike, UTMK members said in a press conference.

The conference was attended by UTMK convenor OP Haseeb, legal coordinator M Anunadh, joint convenors NP Sujith, M Vidya and treasurer VV Reshma.
