JK govt threatens to sack employees, 10th day of strike

With the strike by its employees entering tenth day today, the Jammu and Kashmir government has warned that their services would be terminated if they did not resume work immediately.

After invoking Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) last Monday against its employees, the government has now threatened to terminate the services of those employees who do not report for duty immediately.

Over 4 lakh employees are on the strike to demand arrears of their revised salaries after sixth pay commission recommendations and enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60.

However, Minister for Medical and Technical Education R S Chib told reporters that doors were still open for the striking employees for a dialogue to sort out the issues.

Expressing hope that good sense will prevail upon the employees, he said they should call off the strike and come to the negotiating table for which government is ready.
