Islamabad - Scores of daily wages employees of schools and colleges once again converged outside the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) to demand regularisation of their services.

The employees, including teaching and non-teaching, have been protesting time and again against the non-regularisation of their services.  “The builders of the nation are on roads” and “we appeal to the chief justice and the prime minister to take notice of the woes of daily-wage staff and help regularise their services” said the banners and placards they were holding.

“Though, a commission has been formed as per court orders to start the regularisation process, yet we have been protesting against the apathy of the FDE who despite 100 available seats is not ready to regularise the employees,” said  Ehsan Baig, lecturer at Model College F-7/3.

The protesting employees demanded that the FDE regularise them on available seats and create vacancies to adjust the rest of the employees working on daily wages basis.

Around 3000 teaching and non-teaching employees have been demanding regularisation and release of their salaries that is stopped for the last six months.

The employees negotiated with the management of FDE who could not pacify them thus the employees vowed to continue their protest till their demands are met. The FDE management opined that they cannot do anything until the subcommittee of Establishment and Cabinet Division decides anything about the fate of the employees.
