Academic Activities Suspended By KU Teachers on delay in salaries

According to ARY News, university professors in Karachi have protested the monthly salary delays.

For the fourth time this year, their monthly payments have been postponed, according to the teachers who are in protest. The instructors who are in protest noted that approximately 2500 workers have not yet received their November wages. The institution is experiencing its worst financial crisis as a result of the science faculty’s inability to purchase crucial chemicals for labs due to a lack of funding. Teachers will abstain from all academic activity and hold demonstrations until their salaries are paid.

Two faculty members from the Federal Urdu University for Arts, Science, and Technology (FUUAST) were earlier detained as police halted their march from the Karachi Press Club to the Governor House.

ARY announces pay raise after PM’s appeal

The FUUAST instructors at the Abdul Haq campus had protested in the streets against the Sindh government’s failure to pay their salaries. Several teachers, including female teachers, began their march from the Karachi Press Club, however as they tried to continue towards the Governor House, police units stopped them.

The cops seized two instructors after the talks broke down. The protesters, though, vowed to keep up the protest until their demands were fulfilled. Over 100 teachers were allegedly manhandled and detained by police the day before as they sought to travel from the Karachi Press Club to the Sindh Assembly and Chief Minister House. But later in the evening, they were all let go. The protesting teachers charged that the provincial government had “selected” only IBA-passed educators while “discriminating” against NTS-passed educators.
