Employees suspend stir after Government turns sympathetic
The Adhikari Karmchari Shikshak Samanvay Samiti (AKSSS)-the umbrella organisation of all the employee associations-has decided to suspend its proposed mega rally slated on February 4. The decision has been taken at a meeting of the executive body on Saturday.
The spokesperson of AKSSS, Arun Pandey, said that following the positive response shown by the State Government on their demands, there was no reason to stick to the stir plan slated on February 4.
The employees have been demanding payment of the Assured Career Progression ( ACP) at the end of 10, 16 and 26 years. Apart from HRA and ACP, the employees have been demanding the old pension scheme be restored and compulsion of referral from the Atal Ayushman Uttarakhand scheme be removed.
The AKSSS also keeps demanding the class IV employees be given benefit of staffing pattern in which grade of pay of Rs 4,200 is provided to them.
Notably, AKSSS had organised a mass leave programme on January 31 in support of its demands which crippled the functioning of the Government departments, leaving the common people inconvenienced.
Apart from accepting their major demand of increasing the House Rent Allowance ( HRA), the State Government had formed a committee to look into other demands of the employees, a move which prompted the agitating outfit to climb down from its proposed stir plan.
