- APUBTA demands the implementation of Section 10 (q) of the HEC ordinance regarding faculty service structure
- APUBTA was engaged in negotiation for two years but HEC could not resolve the issue
All Pakistan Universities BPS Teachers Association (APUBTA) has started struggling against discriminatory policies regarding the service structure of university teachers. Due to these policies, forty thousand employees in universities feel highly dissatisfied, and it badly affected the overall standard of our higher education. The association brought the issue to the notice of Chairman HEC on June 29, 2020, and until now, thirty meetings have been conducted with the HEC.
In a meeting with the BPS faculty on Oct 14, 2021, HEC committed that the whole review and redrafting of the BPS promotion policy will be completed by the end of November 2021 after consultation with the different stack holders. A committee was constituted to review and redraft service rules for BPS faculty. The final report of this committee was shared with the Vice Chancellors of all public sector universities on Dec 2, 2021.
In a meeting with the BPS faculty on March 10, 2022, HEC committed that the BPS promotion issue will be resolved till Mid of May 2022. Another committee was constituted to review and revise the appointment and promotion rules for the BPS faculty. It was notified that the committee will complete the task within four weeks (till 11th April 2022). This is very unfortunate that the solution is still pending and ninety percent of a faculty members in universities are suffering.
Regretfully, it is to announce that APUBTA is going to stage a peacemembersotest and sit-in front of the HEC office from October 12, 2022.
Prime Minister Shabaka Sharif and the Federal Minister for Education are requested to peacefully resolve the matter before the deadline as the teaching community of highly esteemed institutions believes in dignified solutions instead of roads.
