JAMMU: The water supply in entire Jammu region may remain affected on May 28, 29 as all the employees and other workers of PHE/ Jal Shakti Department have declared two days strike.
Addressing a joint press conference on Thursday senior members of PHE Employees United Front including, KC Dubey, Naresh Kumar, Davinder Singh, Balbadar Sharma and Rajesh Jamwal said that PHE daily wagers have declared strike on May 28 and 29, 2022 in support of their long pending demands.
Since UT administration is adopting delaying tactics in solving their issues, therefore, United Front has decided to extend full support to the proposed strike of daily wagers, tactically and morally. They appealed to all the permanent employees to join hands and come out for the support of all the daily wagers in this strike.
They pointed out that daily wagers are part and parcel of their organization and performing duty since long. Their demands and issue are genuine and justified. The UT Govt is only adopting delaying tactics in solving their issues pertaining to release of pending wages and regularization.
They said if the Govt failed to solve their issue within 15 days, they will openly go on indefinite strike along with daily wagers. And the date of decisive strike will be announced shortly, they maintained.
They also alleged that many SRO-43 cases are pending with the Government and LG's Administration has failed to decide the fate of such cases pending for the last 3-4 years. Many cases are even prior to August 2019, and have remained pending since then. They further demanded conduct of DPC of all the cadre in PHE.
They also demanded enhancement of Medical Allowance of the employees and pensioners.
