With the call-off of the more than four month long cease work strike of the Manipur government employees, normal functioning in the government offices resumed Thursday.
Mention may be made that the cease work strike commenced from January 17 last was called-off with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the government and representatives of the striking employees late Wednesday.
The government agreed to in toto implementation of the Central 6th Revised Pay effective from January 2006 “notionally” with an arrear for six months in which the actual cash payment is to be effective from April 2010. Government also agreed to consider seven out of 14 point demands of the employees.
“We have suspended the cease work strike immediately and resumed work from today,” said publicity and information secretary, L Priyobarta of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of AMTUC and AMGEO when contacted.
Even though the cease work was suspended and all the employees arrested by the police were released without any condition with government returning the FIR cases lodged against them, some departments including the PWD and PHED were not happy with the MoU.
“We are not happy with the nature of agreement but we decided to suspend the strike considering the prevailing situation of the state where people are suffering a lot owing to the non-availability of essential commodities due to the prolong economic blockades on the national highways,” H Ibomcha, a spokesperson of the PHED employees union said.
