Employees strike affects work in offices

KL Report


Work in Jammu and Kashmir government offices was affected Friday, due to strike, called by Joint Consultative Committee (JCC), alleging that government has failed to implement the agreements.

Work in all government offices was badly affected as employees stayed away in response to call by JCC, demanding increase in the retirement age from present 58 years to 60 years, regularisation of daily wagers and contractual, anganwari workers, ASHA workers and release of salaries of different departments.

The JCC has threatened to intensify the agitation if leaders and other employees arrested were not released immediately.

The committee also said it was ready for dialogue on the issue with the government.

The JCC has given fresh programme for agitation last week after talks between the government and them failed.

The issue of striking employees was also raised in the Legislative Assembly by PDP, Communist Party of India (M) and Bharatiya Janata Party members on Friday.

Meanwhile, opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded immediate release of employees and leaders, taken into custody during the past few days.
