Fast unto death by temporary power workers

NAMRUP: More than two dozen contractual workers engaged in the Namrup Thermal Power Station are on fast unto death from Monday raising a slew of their demands partially affecting the functionings of the power generation operation.  With festoons and play cards the contractual employees started staging the hunger strike from Monday morning in front of the General Manager’s office demanding immediate settlement of their appointment issue.

 

“ With this hunger strike we demand steps to ensure appointment on permanent basis. Otherwise, we would keep striking,” said Babul Chandra Das, president of  Fixed Pay Contractual Labour Union said. He said,” on June 9, 2017 in a tripartite meeting, the authorities promised to meet our demand within 6 months. But the General Manager (Generation) has gone back to his promise,” said Das.
