Pakistan: KU teachers go on strike over non-payment of dues

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 22 Sep 2023, 06:52 pm

The Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) began an indefinite strike on Friday to protest against the non-payment of dues for over a year.

Speaking to The News International as quoted by Geo News,  KUTS Secretary Dr Faizan-ul-Hassan Naqvi said that the strike will continue for an unspecified period over the financial and administrative crises until the teacher’s body decides otherwise.

Naqvi said the KU’s budget had not been approved for the past four years, which had affected the academic and research work at the university.

“The teachers in the evening programme have not been paid their arrears for the past one-and-a-half years, while the permanent faculty members are yet to receive the increment announced in the provincial government’s budget four months ago,” he said.

“The visiting faculty are being hired at a rate of Rs600 per lecture, which after deduction is reduced to Rs480. Even this is not being paid.”
