Bathinda, August 18

State ministerial staff members’ pen-down strike today entered the 12th day. The employees staged a protest against the state government outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office in Bathinda.

Kewal Bansal, president, Punjab State Ministerial Service Union, Bathinda, said the employees would go on mass casual leave.

The demands of the protesters include immediate transfer of arrears of various allowances into their accounts, extension of full pension benefits to staff members who were recruited after 2004, and complete implementation of the rules and proposals of the 6th Pay Commission. Besides, they have sought revival of allowances to the ministerial staff, release of instalments of dearness allowance and rollback of the state government’s decision pertaining to giving only basic pay and no allowance to fresh recruits for the first two years of their service. — TNS
