Patiala, June 4
Members of the Powercom and Transco Contractual Employees Union Punjab, along with their families and children, held a protest outside the PSPCL office on the second day today. The union state president, Balihar Singh, said, “The state government and the PSPCL are exploiting contractual employees, who are working on meager salaries.”
“Before coming to power the Captain-led government assured people that they will be provided government jobs and contractual employees be regularised, but none has been fulfilled,” he added.
The state government and powercom chairman had taken decisions, including rehiring of relieved contractual employees, doing away with leave policy, providing regular jobs and financial assistance to families of those, who died during service and releasing pending payments, but these were not being implemented, he said.
Pending assurances should be fulfilled contract of the private company hiring employees should be increased for one year else they be given regular jobs, said protesters.—TNS
