[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 May 2011, 02:35 GMT]
The Ceylon Tamil Teachers Union (CTTU) in its May Day message said that Colombo should take immediate steps to provide equal status in education to affected students in Vanni region, and also to provide relief and other assistance to teachers who were reported killed and disappeared in the conflict.

CTTU General Secretary Mr.T.Mahasivam in the May Day message said compensation, pension and other financial assistance should be provided to the families of teachers who were reported killed and disappeared in the conflict. The government without delay should implement the new circular regarding the Teachers Service Scheme which is considered beneficial to the teaching community.

The CTTU condemns the attitude of the education authority that implements a teacher transfer scheme without consulting teacher trade unions. The CTTU appeals to education authority to give due respect to fundamental and trade union rights of teachers, CTTU in its May Day said.
