July 20, 2021

LAHORE:Punjab University (PU) teachers, officers and employees held a joint press conference here Monday and demanded grant of Disparity Allowance to all grades of university teachers, officers and employees.

The press conference was organised by the PU’s Joint Action Committee in which they made a unanimous demand for the provision of 25pc Disparity Reduction Allowance to teachers, officers and employees from grade one (BS-1) to twenty-two (BS-22) without any discrimination. In the matter of Utility Allowance, they demanded the grant of the allowance without any delay.

The representatives of FAPUASA, Federation of Officers Association and Employees Association of Punjab and All Pakistan Clerk Association participated in the press conference. Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) president Dr Mumtaz Anwar Ch while addressing the press conference said that the level of inflation was mounting and instead of providing relief, the government was depriving the university teachers and employees of their legitimate rights in the form of special allowances. He said that the teachers and employees of Punjab University would go to any extent to get due right.

He said the university teachers and employees should also get Utility Allowance for which they would work out a plan of action in collaboration with FAPUASA Punjab. Dr Ahtisham Ali, General Secretary, FAPUASA Punjab, said if the government did not immediately suspend the notification and announce a bailout package for the allowance, then after formulating its action plan, FAPUASA would launch its protest movement from Punjab, Lahore in which all faculty, officers and employees from universities across the province will participate.

Jaleel Tariq President, PU officers Welfare Association, Saifur Rehman Atiq, President, Librarian Association, Nasir Rehmat, Ch Basharat, Shahid Butt, Qari Baber and Asif Tanveer along with a large number of university employees and faculty members were present.
