Message from Shri Shailendra Dubey, Chairman, All India Power Engineers Federation
The unity of electricity employees and engineers of Uttarakhand along with those from all over India has forced the Uttarakhand Government to concede to the just demands of the electricity employees.
After detailed talks with Uttarakhand CM Pushkar Singh Dhami, Energy Minister Dr Harak Singh Rawat & Chief Secretary, the Strike Notice of Uttarakhand Power Employees & Engineers Sangharsh Morcha is withdrawn. The CM has categorically assured to issue orders of Time bound Pay Scales/ACP as were applicable before 2017, i.e., three promotion scales after 09, 14 &19 years. Orders for revision of several allowances issued after talks.
The authorities tried to crush the struggle of the electricity employees by declaring National Security Act (NSA) and Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA), by trying to recruit temporary electricity employees and engineers from neighbouring states, etc. But all their attempts failed in the face of the united struggle of the electricity employees and engineers under the banner of NCCOEEE (National Coordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers).
Long Live NCOOEEE!
