The government has received a fatal blow after court declared ongoing teachers strike legal and protected. The court also ordered the government to pay teachers the September Salary immediately.
Curiously, however, the judge directed that teachers suspend their strike for 90 days to allow pay negotiations. Legal experts are yet to analyse the ruling especially the direction that teachers should resume work to allow negotiations. Many are of the view that the direction was just an orbiter dicta (just by the way words) that do not constitute an order but mere foreplay.
