Pakistan Labour Federation (PLF) demanded to stop the discrimination against Women teachers of the junior sections of Islamabad’s model college

Pakistan Labour Federation (PLF) demanded the Management to stop the discrimination against. the  women teachers of the junior sections of Islamabad’s model colleges feel The reason is that the Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) has returned their promotion cases to the Federal Directorate of Education after sitting on them for more than seven months but promoted many lecturers of the senior sections as assistant professors (BPS-18). In November 2017, the FDE had sent the CADD the cases of 28 model college teachers (BPS-17), including 17 of senior sections and 11 of junior sections, for promotion as assistant professors and assistant headmistresses, respectively. After procrastinating for months, the CADD promoted all 17 senior section teachers but sent the cases of junior section teachers back to the FDE saying their latest performance evaluation reports (PERs) are missing. The junior section teachers, many serving in the same basic pay scale for years, declared the act discriminatory and it was ironic that they were denied promotion but all contemporaries in senior sections got promotion. Mrs Atia Saleem Chairperson (PLF) and President All Pakistan Educational Employees Association said denial of the right to promotion due to the red-tape had demoralized junior section teachers. and “Disappointment and frustration has swept women teachers, who feel ignored, discouraged, humiliated, demoralized and discriminated against She urge the  CADD secretary for intervention to end discrimination against junior section teachers by ensuring early promotion.

Dear comrades! 

We express our sincere empathy due to the deaths of people because of fire in the suburbs of Athens. The news of this tragic incident, which caused the death of dozens of people, became for us a tremendous shock.

We sincerely share the pain and bitterness of the loss of Greek families.

Press Release of the FISE on the wildfires

The World Federation of Teachers union’s  FISE  expresses its solidarity with the families of the victims of wildfires in Athens, resulting, until now, in the loss of life of 80 people.

On the occasion of the loss of human lives in every part of the planet either from wildfires, floods, earthquakes or extremely hot and cold weather, the International Trade Union movement the WFTU and FISE has underlined the big responsibilities of the governments, since, due to the policies of austerity and privatization, the citizens, mostly the poorest ones, are unprotected.

Face to these governmental policies which have in their centre the capitalist profit and not the protection of the ordinary people, we call upon the militant trade unions from all over the world to strengthen their pressure demanding from the authorities to adopt measures and funds for the protection against wildfires, floods, earthquakes and for the application of health and safety conditions at the work places.

The FISE supports the initiatives of PAME and of all militant trade unions of Greece, which through their action and their positions, they stand at the side of the victims of the wildfires at the capital of Greece.

The FISE supports the efforts of the firemen, of many workers and volunteers who fight unevenly with the fire.

We wish the 172 injured persons who are now hospitalized full and speedy recovery and to join their families soon.
