Tarn Taran, June 5

As many as 20 workers deputed at the outlet stores of Powercom in Tarn Taran and Patti are a disgruntled lot as they have not been paid salaries for the last three months. The outsourced workers were being given a meager salary of Rs 4,700 per month.

They said they had urged the contractor of the company concerned many a time to pay them their salaries, but he was deliberately delaying the payment of salaries to them. They are facing great hardships without salaries. They are unable to bear the expenditure of their houses.

Devinder Singh Bath, one of the contractors of the company, said the company was to pay them salary for only one month, not three. He said the contact period of the company was going to be ended on June 30. He said they had made all arrangements to pay the salary to the workers but one employee of Powercom was creating obstacles as a result of which they had failed to pay them their salaries.

Gurpreet Singh Gandiwind, leader of the Powercom Employees’ Union, demanded early payment of the salary to the employees and said deposit the salaries directly into their bank accounts.
