V K Gupta, the spokesperson of AIPEF, said, “Shailendra Dubey, chairman, AIPEF, said that the meeting opposed the victimisation of UP Power Employees and Engineers after betraying the agreement made on March 19, 2023. He said that 124 employees were suspended and 2,400 contractual workers were removed from their jobs. They have not yet been reinstated. UP Power Corporation is planning to throw out all 70,000 contractual workers from the power sector, replacing them with ex-servicemen. NCCOEEE and all its constituents stand beside the UP power men.”
Gupta further informed that during the press meet on March 19 2023, UP Power Minister had requested the unions to call off their strike with specific commitment that all related matters of 3rd December 2022 settlement will be honoured. “The victimization has blatantly violated the promises made by the Power Minister before the media and the subsequent government press releases,” he added.Also ReadWatch | Defence College collapses amid heavy rainfall in Uttarakhand’s De...‘They are dealers, not leaders’: Retired judges, officers write to Presid...No respite for Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh from extremely heavy rain ti...Independence Day 2023 Live: In address to nation on eve of 77th Independe...
