Pothashang News Service: Imphal, May 28, 2018: Manipur secretariat on Monday remained paralysed as its employees have launched mass cease work strike demanding immediate implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
The Joint Administrative Council of All Manipur Trade Unions’ Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Government Employees’ Organisation (AMGEO) launched cease work strike on March 22.
Moirangthem Iboyaima, working president of Manipur Secretariat Services’ Association said, we have talked with the state government many times. The chief minister had told us to implement the central pay scale after the fitment committee provides a report. Now after the fitment committee had submitted its report the chief minister asserted to form a special financial board to find out the feasibility of implementation of the pay scale. “We are discouraged with the delaying tactics of the government. We don’t know whether the government has fund or not. If the government has to implement the central pay scale it has to issue an order mentioning when it would be implemented”, said Iboyaima.
The employees decided to continue until the demand is fulfilled and cautions to launch different forms of agitations.
Manipur Government Services’ Federation (MGSF) took the decision on Sunday to launch ‘Complete Cease Work Strike’ in coordination with the Manipur Secretariat Services’ Association to achieve its solo demand for implementation of 7th Central Pay scale in the state.
Employees of essential service are also getting ready to join the strike says MGSF.
