Share This


Forest Department employees, who have been without salaries for the past five months, have decided to boycott work.

More than 4,000 workers are finding it difficult to make ends meet. Jaswinder Singh, general secretary of the Punjab Forest Workers' Union, said, "We have been holding protests for over a month now, but the authorities have failed to address the issue. We have decided to boycott work till August 31. If the government pays our dues, we will resume work."

He added: "We were getting Rs 8,700 per month, which is not enough to run a household." The matter was highlighted in these columns, but no action was taken.

DFO Swaran Singh said, "The process to release salaries of forest workers has been completed." — TNS
