PTI | February 10, 2010
Striking employees of various ministries in Uttarakhand on Wednesday decided to continue their month-long stir demanding pay hike after failure of their talks with the government.
"As our talks with the state government has failed to yield the desired results, we have decided to continue our stir," president, Federation of Ministerial Services Association T S Pundir said.
Nearly 30,000 ministerial employees are on strike since January 11 demanding upgradation of pay scale of chief assistant to Rs 5000 from the existing Rs 4500.
Pundir said the employees would not end their strike till their demand is met.
On the other hand, the state government has once again appealed to the striking employees to return to work as it is affecting the common people.
