JAMMU, Dec 26: While opposing much publicized new regularization policy of the PDP-BJP Government, PHE Workers Welfare Association (PHEWWA) has decided to defer the strike call for February 28, 2018.
Talking to media-persons here today, Bakshi Singh president  and general secretary Subhash Verma said that there is nothing to appreciate in the new so called regularization policy of this Government. It is just attempt of the Government to befool and ditch the hapless poor workers who are facing exploitation at the hands of Government agencies since decades. The daily rated workers strongly condemn and oppose this policy, they added.
They said  in view of the assurance from the Government to review this policy and rectify some anomalies in SRO-520, the Association resolved to defer the strike call given for February 28, 2018. They said the Association has also taken strong exception that  ITI and Govt recognized Diplomas have been made compulsory for the workers to be considered as skilled workers.
The Association leaders further expressed concern  over the fact that the persons who rendered decades of service as daily rated workers and is at the verge of attaining the age of 60 years  have altogether been ignored in the present SRO. These leaders said that present regularization cannot be termed as proper unless all the allowances and provisions of CSR  are extended to such regularised workers. They said a mass awareness campaign has been started by the Association and next course of action is being chalked out.
