The teachers of government primary schools are going to observe indefinite strike from October 1 demanding the change in teachers' salary.
Bangladesh Primary Teachers Association leaders announced the programme at a press conference at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) in the capital on Friday.
The teachers said indefinite sit-in program will be staged at the central Shaheed Minar until their demands are met.
It was known that the Education Ministry sent a letter to the Finance Ministry to upgrade the salary scale of primary school teachers.
Following the letter on September 8 the Finance Ministry said there was no scope for a rise in the salary of headmasters and assistant teachers of government primary schools.
At the press conference, Bangladesh Primary Teachers Association President Md Atikur Rahman said a memorandum would be sent to all the upazila nirbahi officers on September 26 to meet their demand.
