Profile of Govt Teachers Union (GTU) Punjab

About US
Before Indian independence, school education in Punjab was governed by district boards. Teachers were facing a lot of problems at that time. To represent these problems, the already existing District Board Teacher union was active during the 5th decade of 20th century. During the 6th decade, the activities of this union were at its peak and as a result of intense pressure of the union; the state government had to take control of the district board school with the staff as well.

This was such a great achievement of the District Board Teacher union; that not only revolutionized the school education system; but along with that brought a sigh of great relief to the teachers. This State Board Teacher’s Union was renamed as Government Teacher's Union (GTU).

From the beginning itself, the history of Government Teacher's (GTU) Union has been glorified by the struggle and achievements of various movements that this union has fought for the teachers. This union (GTU) started a movement against the state government for the implementation of Kothari Commission report with effect from 1st January 1966. Finally the state government had to bow down to this demand. As a result of implementation of this report, there was a huge increase in the salaries of teachers and more than that this was a fight for the honor and status of the teachers in society.

But during these times, there were many organized groups of teachers having their own leadership. The whole teacher community was eager to see the teachers organized under one flag and one union. As a result this desire, in November 1972, all these groups gathered at Philaur. This is known as Philaur convention. This convention led to the formation of the constitution of Govt. Teacher's union. This constitution gives the right to all teachers to elect their block and district presidents by direct and secret votes.

Under this constitution; 5 elections held between the years 1973 to 1983. 98% to 99% polling was observed in these elections. In the first election, fought in 1973, the Dhillon group got majority while in the following election Rana group lead the union by winning the elections. During this period, our union was not only the center of movement of Punjab employees; but also the biggest union in northern India.

By the year 1986, the rest of the groups had realized that it is next to impossible to uproot the Rana group from power as this group was doing everything to fight for the rights of teachers; and so, it was a very popular group among the teachers. So, the other groups decided to boycott the elections by giving irrelevant reasons like this election is tiring and expensive. However, as this constitution was the best democratic constitution known so far; hence we kept on following it. However, the other groups (separately or by forming an alliance) try to test their strength by contesting in one or two blocks (or sometimes in one district). This also happened in Nurpur Bedi block (Distt. Ropar), where our candidate defeated the opponent (supported by the joint front of rival groups) by the margin of 27 votes.

The latest, 14th election of the union has been completed recently, on 5th August 2012.
The union has three bodies:

1. General Council
2. Presidium
3. State Committee

As per the constitution, the union has a General Council. The General Council is the General House of the union which consists of district and block presidents that are directly elected through voting by the teachers. Further, the district presidents nominate district committees while block presidents nominate block committee in their respective district and blocks. Another union body is known as Presidium which consists of District Presidents (and not block presidents). Presidium elect a State Committee among themselves that consists of a State President, General Secretary, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Joint Secretary, Press Secretary, Finance Secretary and three zonal press secretaries.
