Four Hundred government institutions in poor condition of private employees!

Manik Hosen, Rajshahi Divisional Correspondent :

The demand for payment of salaries and allowances as per government scale from the date of appointment of private employees, who are working in government educational institutions till the date of officialization and prior to officialization of the job remains as a demand. 95% of the employees are working in the 400 government educational institutions of the country. They are not getting any response even after submitting multiple memorandums to the Prime Minister, Education Minister, Deputy Education Minister, Education Secretary and Director General.

On such a demand (March 4) at 11 o’clock, a human chain was held at the city’s Sahebbazar Zero Point under the banner of the Government College Employees Union.

Union President Ehsanul Kabir Imon, General Secretary Shafiqul Islam Sweet, Chief Advisor Hafizur Rahman, Joint General Secretary Manowar Hossain Manu and many others spoke at the human chain.

Private employees of government institutions of 8 districts of Rajshahi division were present in this human chain. First of all, the demand has been made for the permanent employment of private employees working in government colleges and their transfer to the revenue sector. Secondly, they demanded payment of salary allowances as per government pay scale till job regularization.

Union President Ehsanul Kabir Emon said, They started the program by paying respect to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the best Bengali father of a thousand years. In about 4 hundred government colleges and 3 government madrasahs of Bangladesh, private employees are working as 3rd and 4th class employees after being appointed through principals for the last 10 to 25 years or more. The coalition has taken to the streets to reclaim the quality of life after being crushed by the roller of rising commodity prices. Their monthly salary is 5 thousand to 10 thousand taka. With this small salary, their families are living a very difficult life in the market of high prices of goods. Although the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education has published recruitment circulars in 2013 and 2020, it has not given any preference to private sector employees.

He further informed. In that notification, according to the directions of a writ case of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, the Maushi authorities did not follow the directions even though private employees were given priority. In government colleges, only 5% of employees are employed in government, and 95% of employees are employed in private sector. The private employees of government colleges have held a sit-in program for 18 consecutive days from November 8 to November 26, 2020 in front of the National Press Club to demand that their jobs be made permanent in Dhaka.

For more than 10 to 25 years, they have cherished the educational institution like their own children. They requested the Prime Minister that their fate will not change and they will be deprived of their rights without the Prime Minister’s approval.

In such a situation, by appointing them on priority basis, it is said as an example to facilitate the survival of ordinary employees. Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was expelled from the university in 1949 for supporting the movement of 4th class employees in Dhaka University. Still the great leader did not give up. Bangabandhu’s courage and inspiration will continue the movement until we get our demands.

Rajshahi College Vice President Md Main Uddin, Md Badiuzzamal Nayan conducted the human bonding program, Government College Private Employees Union President Md Ehsanul Kabir Emon presided over.
