Patiala, March 19
Class-IV employees of the Public Works Department (PWD) today held a protest outside the residence of PWD Minister Vijay Inder Singla over restructuring and declaration of various posts as dying cadre.
The employees said their associations were not taken in loop before taking the decisions. They said they earlier held a hunger strike outside the office of Chief Engineer (headquarters) at the Mini-Secretariat and a protest near the DPDO office in the city.
Darshan Singh Lubhana, state president of the Class-IV Government Employees’ Union, said: “Our concerns are also not heard when we contact respective officials. The government has taken one-sided decisions and did not care about employees demands.”
