Teachers’ body demands promotion of UET faculty members

Lahore

June 5, 2020

LAHORE:A meeting of Teaching Staff Association (TSA) of the University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Lahore criticising the university administration for keeping teachers’ rationalisation policy secret has demanded promotion of all faculty members to next grades who fulfill requirements set by the HEC.

The UET-TSA meeting chaired by its president Dr Fahim Gohar Awan also demanded the university administration hold elections of the UET Syndicate against vacant seats at the earliest.

The participants of the meeting observed that the worthy Vice Chancellor of the UET must acknowledge the fact that the promotion for faculty was their right not favour to them and any positive progress in UET was pertinent to regular, rational and across the board promotions. “Nevertheless, no significant perks are associated to the promotion from one cadre to the next that comes with an average 10,000 rupees increase in the gross salary. Instead it is more to do with the self-respect and prestige of a teacher to get what he deserves,” they said.

They also said it would be devastating to defy the faculty members' rights of promotion. Any criteria beyond that of HEC would be an unfortunate attempt to temper the rational procedure of promotion would deprive teachers of their basic right, which would have long term negative impacts on this institution itself. The UET-TSA demanded that the selection board should be announced for all seats (as per new rationalization scheme though) at the earliest with no other than the HEC criteria for promotion.
