- KUET teachers abstain from work demanding separate pay-scale
August 16, 2015
Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET) teachers have enforced a three-hour 'no work' demanding a separate pay scale and review of the proposed 8th national pay scale. After their protest demonstration from 10am to 1pm on Sunday, they warned of more intense agitation. The agitprop plan for Bangladesh University Teachers Federation also included signature campaigns. They demanded that selection-grade professors be paid the same salary, allowance, benefits and status as senior-level secretaries. The current salary structure puts university teachers in the same grade with the secretaries and major generals, but the proposed one lowers the pay of the teachers three to four tiers below them. Teachers of KUET gathered in front of university administrative building at 10am in keeping with their declared schedule.
KUET Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Muhammed Alamgir, President of KUET Teachers Association Prof. Md. Golam Kader, General Secretary Dr. Sk. Shariful Alam and other teachers delivered their speech.
