According to AIPEF chairman Shailendra Dubey, National Coordination Committee Of Electricity Employees and Engineers (NCCOEEE) had already served the strike/work boycott notice to Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal at Kochi on November 6 during the power ministers' conference.
Dubey said Goyal had assured during the discussions at Kochi that the Centre is making several changes to the bill that would be placed on Internet before Winter Session of Parliament.
NCCOEEE convener AB Bardhan has reminded Goyal through a letter about his promises to redress the issues raised by workers and engineers at Kochi, but more than a week's time has elapsed and because of no response from the Union Power Minister, there was a deadlock.
Dubey said leaders of all national federations would be meeting in Delhi tomorrow to finalise the strategy for the strike.
The All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) chairman added that despite opposition of power employees and engineers, Central government has placed Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2014 on the agenda of Lok Sabha for Winter Session.
