Srinagar: Secretary 1st of Jammu and Kashmir Bank Employees Union, Mir Aftab Iqbal, resigned from his position on Sunday.
According to a release issued here, Aftab, was associated with the union for one year and five months.
“I wanted issues of promotion policy, double wages, and time-bound promotions to be addressed. But I felt that neither the president nor the general secretary were interested in the welfare of workmen,” Aftab said in the release.
“I resigned because I don’t see the union concerned about the welfare and demands of the workmen,” he added.
Aftab alleged that the union “is currently and mostly busy with lobbying and playing politics, which has ultimately created sycophants instead of working professionals”.
He called for dissolution of the union.
“During my tenure, I worked for the issues of the staff, but due to non-cooperative and unprofessional behavior of the union, I cannot continue,” he stated, asking the president and the general secretary to provide the expenditure details to Executive Committee members of the union.
“It has always been my endeavour to work for the welfare of all my colleagues and I shall continue to do so whether being in union or not,” he said.
