The  topic  reviews the roles of  Teachers’ Unions  in  teacher  recruitment,  selection, and promotion and their impacts on the timely graduate teachers  as well as to the educational system in general. The objectives of the research were to analyze the current situation in the Malaysia’s  Ministry of Education from the Human Resource Management (HRM) point of view. It  outlines the issues  that exist within HRM particularly  on  the  influence of teachers’ Unions in  the formation of Human Resource policy in education on teachers’  recruitment channel , selection methods and promotion and its effects on the timely  graduate teachers.  Special reference was given to the latest Malaysia’s educational policy - Malaysian  National Education Blueprint (2013-2025) which  inter alia has  included  human resource management in its transformation program.  We argue that Teachers’ Unions have their influence in the  formation of   policy  by the Ministry of  Education on recruitment, selection and promotion of  teachers.  How the  policy benefits the college-qualified teachers and affect the timely  graduate teachers in particular and the educational system in general.
