ISLAMABAD: Female teachers of Islamabad Model College for Girls I-8/4 (Junior section) have expressed annoyance for supervising maintenance and security related works in the college during summer vacation.

The teachers of junior section, located in sector I-8/2, have assigned the duties by the principal to supervise security, whitewashing, maintenance of building, cleanliness and grass cutting in grounds.

Talking to APP on Sunday, a group of teachers said the teachers in other colleges were enjoying vacations, but they “forcibly asked to attend the college and supervise the clerical staff in their works.”

They claimed, “The college principal has ordered us to remain present in the college on different dates during summer vacation. We are also required to write and submit reports about daily progress”. Every college had non-teaching staff like clerks, assistants, accountants, laboratory assistants, attendants, chowkidars, sweepers, and gardeners, who were supervised by admin officers, but in this college teachers were asked to perform the clerical duties, they added.–APP

“This is not part of our duty to supervise such activities in hot and humid weather conditions when all the teachers are enjoying summer vacation,” they said.

Moreover, we are denied of benefits like conveyance allowance and 48 days earned leave as per government leave rules”, the teachers said.
