JCC readies for major face-off with government

Calls Statewide Protests From Jan 8


Jammu, Jan 2: Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) of various employees unions in the state Wednesday announced major face-off with the government asking employees to hold statewide protests during the three day pen-down strike beginning January 8.
Addressing a press conference here today, JCC leaders appealed all the government employees to observe complete lockout on 8th, 9th and 10th January 2013, to press for implementation of the agreement reached between JCC leaders and state government on their demands.
They said the “deliberate delay” by the government in conceding the genuine demands of state employees leaves no alternative for them but to intensify the agitation.
State president of Jammu and Kashmir National Trade Union (JKNTU) appealed 4.5 lakh state government employees including teachers and workers to observe complete strike for three days to press upon the state government to concede their demands including implementation of agreement.
Those present at the press conference included Amrik Singh and Ranjinder Kumar, Gafoor Dar, Nazeer Ahmed Moulvi, Gopal Singh, Arun Moza, Ranjinder Kumar,Vikram Singh, Rohit, Jaswant Singh, Zahid Hussian and Balvinder.
The employees’ demands include enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60 years, removal of pay anomalies and regularization of all daily wagers. Pertinently, the employees-government face-off has been hitting work in government offices from time to time. The employees have been regularly urging the government to fulfill their genuine demands—something which is not seeing the light of the day.
Previously employees had resorted to strike in November last year.
