Strike if allowance hike not implemented by May 31 - NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra

The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), leading the negotiation over pending 7th Pay Commission allowances, has demanded the government to hike the allowances by May 31. The consolidated body of employee union could launch a protest if the government fails to implement the allowance hike by end of the month, said NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra.

“Central government employees are anguished. How long should the employees wait? We definitely not remain silent if the decision on allowances is not taken shortly. We are waiting till May 31. We would most likely protest if the allowance hike would be further delayed,” the NJCA chief said.

The possibility of a protest could not be ruled even if the allowances are hiked, but the demands of NJCA not taken into consideration. “We will discuss each and every detail at JCM (Joint Consultative Machinery) meeting. We would act in the interest of employees,” Mishra added.

However, the veteran unionist denied the possibility of reviving the call for the strike. “We will not resort to a strike. There are other organised methods as well to protest and compel the government to consider our demands,” he said.
