ISLAMABAD, OCT 12 – Chairman Higher Education Commission (HEC) Tariq Banuri has assured the faculty members working under Tenure Track System (TTS) that the Commission has already made a decision to accept their genuine demands. He stated this on Monday while talking to a delegation of TTS faculty members who met him at the HEC Secretariat in Islamabad. He was accompanied by Executive Director HEC Dr. Shaista Sohail and Member Operations HEC Dr. Fateh Marri.
After detailed discussion on different demands by the TTS faculty, it was decided that within the current week HEC will issue three notifications. One notification relates to increase in tenure length of TTS faculty members from six to nine years, with the revised criteria. While the other two notifications relate to clarification regarding administrative positions previously held by TTS faculty as well as the future course of action for holding such positions.
Similarly, two more notifications will be issued in a month’s time. One for the revised salary structure of TTS faculty members and the other one for their pension scheme in light of decisions of the Commission, HEC’s governing body.
It was further discussed that HEC will also consider the other issues raised by TTS faculty members.
