Employees’ woes: JCC threatens to launch agitation again

Jammu: The Joint Consultative Committee (JCC), an amalgam of several employees union spearheading the agitation, Thursday alleged that the government was not sincere in resolving the issues of employees and threatened to launch an agitation yet again.
During an emergency meeting presided by JCC chairman Abdul Qayoom Wani at Jammu, the employees leadership said the state government was pursuing the track of politicising the “sincerity and good intentions of state employees and is once again going to backtrack from its own agreement.”
The members expressed their surprise as to why the recent promises made by  Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and assurances given by the Cabinet Sub-Committee members did not yield any positive results in respect of executing the genuine demands of employees and withdrawal of various draconian laws.
Wani said, “We are being accused of being reluctant but we called off our strike scheduled for February 14 and 15 after the assurances given by the CSC members. Till date, no positive response has been shown by CSC and it seems that government is non-serious in resolving our issues.”
Wani warned that if the government fails to fulfil its promises as per the agreement with JCC, the state employees will come up with a fresh and state wide agitational program “to give a tough and befitting reply to the government.”
