Jammu and Kashmir : 4.5 lakh employees go for strike today

At least 4.5 lakh employees in the government and semi-government offices will go on a complete lock-out strike today to press for the immediate release of their pending benefits under the 6th Pay Commission recommendations.

Talking to Rising Kashmir, chief spokesperson EJAC (Q) and a senior JCC member, Farooq A Trali said there will be a state wide lock-out strike in the government offices, but added that there will be no protests.

“The lock-out strike is aimed to remind the state government to release the pending benefits under the 6th Pay Commission,” said Trali, adding, “A crucial meeting of all the JCC leaders will be held in Jammu on January 5 to chalk-out the future strategy. The strike programme of JCC will also be announced after the meeting on that day and shall be launched before January 15.”

JCC had earlier given a week’s time to the government to fulfill the demands after the employees staged sit-in protests on December 23.

“JCC has formed special squads to monitor the lock-out programme in all the districts. But we won’t be going for any protest today till further programme is announced,” Trali said.

The Employee’s Union is demanding that the retirement age of government employees be raised from 58 years to 60 years at par with central government officials. In addition it also wants regularizing of services of daily wagers and adhoc workers, merging of Cost of Living Allowance into the Dearness Allowance, uniform Housing Rent Allowance as that of central government employees, release of 40 per cent arrears and extending the 6th pay panel benefits to local bodies, municipal corporations and public sector undertakings.
