The government on Monday evening invited Joint Coordination Committee of the employees unions for deliberations on their pending demands which include enhancement in retirement age from 58 to 60 years.
Abdul Qayoom Wani, President Employees joint Action Committee said: “Yes we have been invited for a meeting on Tuesday and we will attend it with a positive mindset.”
Sources in the government said that the meeting will be held in Banquet Hall Srinagar at 2 pm. The meeting will be attended by almost the entire leadership of JCC. Besides the enhancement in retirement age, the main pending demands which will come to fore for discussions include inclusion of five years of services of Rehbra-e-Taleem (ReT), pay anomaly, release of 6th pay commission arrears in favor of municipal corporation employees and local bodies, confirmation of daily wagers, casual labourers and inclusion of services rendered by adhoc employees.
“We do not want any confrontation with the government but we hope that the government addresses our long pending demands,” Wani said. (KNS)
