Jammu, Sept 3: A faction of Government Employees Joint Action Committee (GEJAC) has decided to remain nonaligned during the three day strike call given by Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) from September 6-8.
GEJAC today held a convention and discussed the various problems being faced by the employees in the state and the need for creating a single platform to fight for their rights.
Convention was inaugurated by Sushil Sudan senior member of the GEJAC. Speaking on the occasion, Sudan said that the union members have not been taken into confidence before the call was given by a section of employees.
“We will remain neutral during the strike called for September 6 to 7. We one again reiterate our stand that a a single platform is required to maintain pressure on the government so that there is full implementation of the 6th Pay Commission report”, Sudan said.
Addressing the gathering, senior member of the GEJAC Gafoor Dar urged the employees not to fall prey to the attempts being made by some quarters to divide the workers so that their movement is suppressed.
He said that GEJAC has kept the doors of unity open for the employees so that a united fight is launched against the policies of the government which has denied employees their rights.
Dar alleged that government has always betrayed the employees and has never fulfilled its promise made to the workers from time to time.
It is pertinent to mention here that employees are demanding release of 6th Pay commission arrears in cash in two equal installments on the pattern of central government in favour of workers.
They are also demanding issuance of regularization orders in favour of consolidated, contractual, adhoc and daily wage employees who have completed seven years service as agreed upon by the government.
Apart from this the unions are demanding release of 10 per cent DA in favour of PSU employees as well and implementation of 6th Pay commission report in favour of remaining PSUs. Other demands include removal of pay anomalies of clerical and other cadres in government sector and release of 6 per cent DA in favour of employees and enhancement of retirement age from 58 years to 60 years.
