Pakistan National Federation of Trade Unions (PNFTU) has demanded for end of extension and Adhocism Culture in Higher Education Sector

On the eve of World Teachers’ Day Malik Ali Umar Awan President (PNFTYU) said that when the world was paying Tribute to the Teaching Fraternity for the role they play in an Educated Society — hundreds of Teachers running community schools in far-off areas were sitting under the open sky in the Federal capital He demanding to increase their salaries and announce their service structure. He said that Thousand of Teachers, both men and women, hailing from different cities have been staging a sit-in in front of the National Press Club in to impress on the relevant authorities the urgency of their concerns. He said that they have not been paid for the past seven months and have been working for years without any service structure; hence there is no concept of promotion or upgrade. Around 13,300 Teachers work in the non-formal primary education programme called Basic Education Community Schools (BECS), Teachers at these schools have been demanding their rights for years but are still without any job security while working on the meager salaries of Rs8,000 per month — around half the minimum wage. Fix by the Government of Pakistan
