Imphal : Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Unions’ Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Govt. Employees’ Organisation (AMGEO) today appealed all organisations related to the government employees to at least inform the JAC before launching any sort of agitation to meet their demand.
President of the JAC, Khadem Mani said that as the JAC of AMTUC and AMGEO is not affiliated with any of the political organisations and is a recognised body especially for the state of Manipur any movement which is for the welfare of the employees will not be left aside. He further said that if the movement which concerns for the development and welfare of the employees are separately demanded then it would not be fruitful but a collective movement will be forceful one.
The President of the JAC was talking about a recent announcement by a body which threatened to launch cease work strike from October 25 demanding implementation of the 7 central pay commission for the employees of the state.
Khadem Mani said that the demand for implementation of the 7th Central Pay for the employees of the state is a long standing one and regarding that the JAC had submitted memorandum and other charter of demand since last year.
Besides being mentioning about the series of protest launched by the JAC in 2016, the members had met the Chief Minister of Manipur twice to appraise the need for implementation of the demands for 7th Central Pay.
“On April 21, 2017 and August 29, 2017 we the representatives of the JAC of AMGEO and AMTUC had met the Chief Minister N. Biren Singh. Even though he assured to do the needful, there is still scepticism due to financial constraint”, Khaidem Mani said.
He further said that the members had also met the Deputy Chief Minister Yumanm Joykumar who is in charge of Finance on September 1, 2017 to apprise him about the situation of government employees as he had stated that the state government have not discussed about the implementation of the 7th Central Pay while answering during question hour in the last state assembly session.
JAC of AMGEO and AMTUC is on the right track and is doing everything to implement the 7th Central Pay for the employees of the state, Khadem Mani added.
“We will meet the Chief Minister again as he is the sole responsible authority for the implementation of the 7th Central pay and we will also appraise the matter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Finance Minister of India to provide special package so that the Manipur government can implement the 7th central pay to the employees of the state.
JAC of AMTUC and AMGEO re-iterated stands over its demand for implementation of 7th Central Pay in the state
