EPFO employees go for two-day pen down strike
SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) Friday went on a two-day pen down strike, demanding holding of Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) meeting.
Most of the employees of our organization are posted at the same position for the last 23 years and the higher authorities are least bothered about them, Irshad Ahmad Shah, President J&K Provident Fund Organisation Employees Union, said. We have decided to go on two-day pen down strike in first instance. If our genuine demands are not fulfilled within a week, we will be left with no option but to go on an indefinite strike in whole state, he said.
The strike call given by the union of the organization is supported by Labour Department Non-Gazetted Employees Union.
