PHE Land donors have threatened to launch state wide agitation against the state government if they are not given jobs in the PHE Department.
In a statement, dated 03.04.2012 passed by the Commissioner/Secretary to government, PHE, I and FC Department, Jammu, an order was given to provide jobs to the workers in PHE Deptt, in lieu of their lands donated to the PHE Deptt for setting up the infrastructure for the welfare of the general public.
President of the PHE Employees Union, Sh. Ravinder Singh, stated that the concerned authorities haven’t paid any heed for the redressal of the genuine grievances of the Union Members for the last 3 years.
The various demands of the Union Members includes the regularisation of their jobs, release of their pending wages and to ensure the regular release of wages.
Mr. Singh also requested for the formation of Wages Head in order to get proper and regular wages. The unavailability of regular wages are making the employees anxious and forcing them to come on roads for seeking justice said Mr Singh.
