Uni teachers not happy with new pay scale

Country’s public university teachers are not happy with the new pay scale announced Monday and that is why they would observe their scheduled work-abstention programme Tuesday in all public universities.


The new pay scale has dropped time scale, selection grade and higher scale system since the cabinet has observed that both the time scale and selection grade are discriminatory.


The cabinet, however, has asked the cabinet committee for addressing disparity in the government pay structure to review the proposals of the university teachers.
The primary demand of the university teachers was continuation of the selection grade and introduction of any ‘super grade’ in the new pay scale.


After the announcement of the new pay scale, the cabinet secretary, Muhammad Musharraf Hossain Bhuiyan, told a media briefing that the demand of the university teachers were discussed with “utmost importance” in the meeting as the cabinet is well aware of the dignity and the responsibility of the teachers.


And that is why, he said, the cabinet committee for addressing disparity in the government pay structure was asked to review the demand of the university teachers.


He assured that the university teachers would not be affected by the new pay scale.


When approached, Bangladesh University Shikkhak Samity Federation general secretary ASM Maksud Kamal told Prothom Alo that the new pay scale has created a new grade called ‘super grade’ which would cause disparity in the pay structure.
“As the demand of the teachers has not been met, the work-abstention programme will be observed in all universities on Tuesday,” he said.
