PEC Union Upset about Job Advertisements
The Punjab Engineering College at Chandigarh got angry about the Job Advertisements. The PEC Employees Union made a complaint to the UT Adviser. The complaint was made on Wednesday and it was concerned with the advertising of around 10 non-teaching posts by PEC University of Technology but not taking any kind of prior permission from the UT administration.
What was the complaint exactly about?
The PEC complained to the UT Adviser. Mr. Parimal Rai is the UT Advisor. The PEC Employees Associaton complained about the PEC Authourities. The Union stated that they had uploaded information for recruiting contractual employees to non-academic positions for a period initially up to one year on its official website without the Chandigarh administration's approval.
The union members have alleged that the PEC authorities wanted to engage select candidates on the advertised posts and that is why they had not taken approval from the higher authorities of the University. They have also demanded that the UT administration should instruct the PEC authority to stop the recruitment and an inquiry is ordered in the case.
The PEC authorities have called in applications for the post of the security officer, deputy registrar, assistant librarian, public relations officer, the officer on special duty and sports officer, two executive officers and assistant registrar.
A PEC official said that in a recent Board of Governor (BOG) meeting, an approval was given to the concerned authorities of the University which were concerned with the hiring of staff on the posts lying vacant since long. The authorities had informed the BOG that there were only10 posts that had to be filled immediately as the working of the institute was being affected.
There are around 399 sanctioned posts out of which 150 are lying vacant. The BOG had given a nod to fill a number of 22 of these posts and the PEC authorities have sent the proposal to the UT administration for approval of the advertised posts. The response from the administration is awaited, the official said, adding that 3 months ago the applications were called in to fill these posts but there was no response.
