Tribune News Service

Bathinda, July 11

Members of the PWD Field and Workshop Workers’ Union staged a protest in front of the office of the Water Supply and Sewerage Board in Bathinda and demanded release of salary to employees along with regular jobs to contractual and outsourced workers.

Gurdeep Singh, a union leader, said, “As many as 104 employees, whose services were regularised in 2016, must be given full salaries without any objections. At least one family member of the deceased employees should be provided a job on compassionate grounds and services of all contractual and outsourced workers should be regularised.”

“The old pension scheme must be revived and vacant posts should be filled on a priority basis,” he added.
