"We have decided to observe three day strike (till tomorrow) and if our demands are not met employees would go on indefinite strike from February 12," Neeraj Kumar Verma, General Secretary of PMC Employees Union told news agency. There are around 4000 workers in the PMC of which 1500 are permanent and rest 2500 daily wagers.
Verma said that the talks with the PMC Commissioner Jai Singh did not bear fruit on not agreeing to increase wage of daily workers to Rs 306 a day from Rs 250 daily now equivalent to the amount given to daily wagers in water board. There was no agreement on providing life long pension to family of the deceased employee which is only for five years now, he said.
PMC Commissioner Jai Singh told news agency that during talks last evening "we gave a positive assurance to the striking employees representatives that their two demands including increase in wage and life long pension would be considered sympathetically after assessing the financial implications".
