Varsity teachers to continue strike
Varsity teachers to continue strike


The Federation of Bangladesh University Teachers Association (FBUTA) on Tuesday announced to continue their strike until the government fulfils its demands.



FBUTA president Farid Uddin Ahmed made the announcement while talking to reporters in front of Dhaka University’s Arts Faculty. He alleged that some vested quarters provided wrong information to the Prime Minister about them.



Earlier, teachers of the country’s public universities went on an indefinite strike on Monday protesting what they said discriminations against them in the 8th national pay scale. Public university teachers are on protests since the 8th National Pay Scale was announced on May 14, advocating for a four-point demand that includes the formation of a commission to initiate an independent pay scale for public university teachers.



The other demands of the teachers are salary and allowance parity between senior professors and senior secretaries, and between professors and secretaries; upgrading the status of teachers in the warrant of precedence; and the provision of cars and other allowances for teachers similar to provisions given to bureaucrats, according to UNB. –Mithun
