'Local Bodies’ employees strike from July 13'
Srinagar, July 7: The employees of Urban Local Bodies Thursday decided to go on indefinite strike from July 13 against the Government’s failure to fulfill their demand regarding release of salary according to the reorganization in the department.
Over 4000 employees, who are working in various Municipal Committees and Councils across the Valley, have been demanding the release of funds in accordance with the re-organization in the Urban Development Department.
“The rules were setup by Government vide order number (214-HUD of 2008) in 2008 to meet the salaries of employees under re-organization and the staff pattern was changed, but our salaries has been given as per population of the area of our operation,” said J&K Urban Local Bodies Employees United Forum, president, Manzoor Ahmad Pampori.
The Forum, Pampori said, had requested the concerned authorities to redress their demands. “However, the officials failed to do anything substantial in this regard,” he said, adding the employees were forced to take the recourse of strike.
Over 500 employees working work under Urban Local Bodies as sweepers, sanitary and taxation workers held a meeting here today. The employees appealed to the Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, to intervene in the matter to avoid inconvenience to the public.
“We request to the CM to look into our issues so to avoid inconvenience to public and Amarnath Yatris,” said Pampori.
He said, “We don’t want to create difficulty to Yatris as they are our guests, but we are suffering.”
According to their District President Islamabad, Muhammad Ibrahim Sheikh, there were 1500 employees serving in the district. “There are around 100 employees who are on yatra duty,” he added.
