FCI staff threaten
MANDI, Feb 19 Mr Prem Singh Guleria, zonal joint secretary of the Northern India Executive Staff Union of Food Corporation of India, has threatened to launch an indefinite fast in Delhi on March 13 if the corporation did not implement the agreement arrived at between the union and the management on April 23, 1999.
He urged Union Minister Shanta Kumar to intervene and get the time bound promotions released as per the agreement.
Mr Guleria said there was widespread resentment among 60,000 employees of the corporation many of whom had been stagnating at the same posts for over 22 years.
Employees staged dharnas and demonstrations at district headquarters yesterday.
The national committee
had decided to start a relay fast in front of the FCI
head office in Delhi from March 7 to March 10 and if the
government did not concede their genuine demands an
indefinite fast would be started on March 13.

NJPC staff union misleading
SHIMLA, Feb 19 The Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Employees Union has alleged that the NJPC Employees Union was misleading the government and the public on the latest accord between the Centre and the state government regarding service conditions and other issues concerning the staff of the board on deputation with the corporation. It asserted that there was no reason for the NJPC cadre for rejecting the agreement which had ended discrimination against the seconded employees in the matter of allowances and equivalence of posts.
Mr I.S. Dhiman, general secretary of the union, said the NJPC Employees Union should give up its jealous and negative attitude towards deputationists and fight for the cause of the direct recruits. The latest agreement had only ensured parity in perks, equivalence of posts, office timings, holidays and other facilities between the direct recruits and the seconded ones.
There would no
disadvantage to the NJPC cadre due to the implementation
of the accord. He said the attitude of the NJPC Employees
Union was not conducive to maintaining harmonious
relations between the two cadres and industrial peace in
