University staff to observe partial strike from 15th
Peshawar: The Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic
Staff Association (FAPUASA) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will observe partial
strike in all public sector universities from Sept 15 for
non-implementation of the decision of 50 per cent increase in the
salaries of universities' employees.
During the strike the
employee will wear black bands and boycott teaching and office work for
one hour i.e. 11am to 12 noon daily commencing immediately after opening
of the universities.
This decision was taken in the general body
meeting of FAPUASA held at Agriculture University with its president
Prof Dr Fidda Mohammad here the other day. It expressed deep concern and
dismay over the suspension of 50 per cent increase in salaries
allegedly on the directives of the chancellor.
It came down hard
on Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Chancellor Owais Ahmed Ghani for
blocking the increase in salaries of public sector university employees
across the province.
The meeting was also attended by the
president and general secretaries of Gomal University Dera Ismail Khan,
Kohat University, University of Peshawar, University Engineering and
Technology, Islamia College University and Agricultural University,
During the meeting, the participants said that this
increase in salaries was being paid to university employees in other
three provinces as well as in Islamabad and none of the chancellors of
other provinces had issued directives to suspend the increase made on
the orders of the federal government.
They appealed to the chief
justice of Pakistan to take suo motu notice of this 'unjust and
discriminatory' policy of the governor, which was leading to chaos and
law and order situation in the educational institutions.
resolution was unanimously adopted wherein the prime minister, governor
and Higher Education Commission, Islamabad were requested to ensure
prompt payment of 50 per cent increase in their salaries in all public
sector universities to diffuse the increasing tension and distress among
If the increase in salaries was not paid on
immediately, other options of protests will be explored in a meeting to
be held on Sept 18, the resolution said. Dawn
