6th pay panel report: Mass media employees observe pen-down strike

Jalandhar, July 8

Officers and employees of the Mass Media Wing of the Health Department observed a pen-down strike against recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission and the Finance Department. The district unit members, under the banner of Mass Media Employees and Officers Association, hold a protest in front of the Civil Surgeon’s office. District mass media officer Kirpal Singh Jhalli, deputy mass media officer Jaswinder Kaur, association’s district president BEE Sharandeep Singh, deputy president Nitiraj B Singh, secretary Ketan Prakash, press secretary Chandan Mishra, illustrator-cum-artist Jagatjeet Singh, Jagdeep Kaur, Aseem Sharma, Preetinder Singh, Rakesh Singh, Manav Sharma, Sandeep Walia, Harvinder Kaur, Neeraj Sharma and others were present during the protest.

Kirpal Singh Jhalli said the Mass Media Officers Association had demanded before the pay commission that the posts with the same educational qualification should be given the same pay scale as the Public Relations Department, but the pay commission had done injustice by not considering the demand and ignoring it completely. Sharandeep Singh said, “The association has joined the July 8-9 pen-down strike on the call of Punjab-UT Employees and Pensioners Sanjha Front. All members of association will strike work for two days.

Chandan Mishra said their main demands were restoration of the old-pension scheme and to fill the vacant posts in the department. He said the association would continue their protest till acceptance of the demands. — TNS
