JCC calls for 3-day strike from Jan 8
Jammu, Dec 16: Barely a day after a major showdown with government, Employees Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) today called for another three day strike from January 8 to take forward the ongoing agitation.
The JCC, spearheading the employees’ agitation for past one year, said that it would continue to build pressure on the government to force it to implement the agreement reached on July 8, 2012.
“After observing 2-day strike on December 14 and 15 across the state, the general house of the employees Joint Consultative Committee, met at Jammu and after threadbare discussions decided to intensify the struggle for full implementation of the agreement signed between government and JCC leadership on July 8”, Muhammad Khursheed Alam, Abdul Qayom Wani and Muhammad Gafoor Dar told reporters here.
They alleged that the government was dragging its feet with regard to the implementation of the agreement and fulfillment of other genuine demands of employees to buy time till election year to get political mileage, they said. “JCC would not allow government to succeed in its designs and would compel it to fulfill all demands at the earliest.”
Fayaz Andrabi, Sayed Ghulam Raool Gilani, Manzoor Pampoori, Jaswant Singh, Ganesh Khajuria, Hari Singh, Nazir Ahmed Molvi and many other employees leaders were also present at the press conference.
