Kurukshetra: A gate meeting called by the Haryana Roadways Combined Struggle Committee was held at Kurukshetra Depot on Tuesday which was headed by Chairman Raj Kumar Sharma.

Roadways Workers Regional Secretary Dharmbir Hooda who was also the chief speaker of the event, said, “The PF and DA Bill introduced by the union government in the Parliament is against the interests of workers in the country.”

In a bid to pressurise the Centre to withdraw this Pension Bill, all trade unions of the country will hold a nationwide strike on February 28. Also, a two-hour token strike will be held by Roadways employees on February 23 to implement the demands accepted by the union government, he said.

It was said, the Depot General Managers are implementing the demands at their own discretion. The regional secretary said, the two hour token strike could also be extended for a whole day.
