Assam: Gauhati HC directs Assam govt to resettle evicted families of Gorukhuti

Shillong, Feb 22: The President of Mawmluh Cherra Cement Employees’ Union (MCCEU) Shanlang Diengdoh said that a meeting of the general body of employees will be held to decide on agitating again as their pending salaries of more than 15 months are yet to be released by the government.

Speaking to Hub News, he said, “We received only the relief advance from the government. But this is not enough and we need the salary which has been pending for 16-17 months”.

Expressing unhappiness at the delay in taking prompt action by the government, he said the employees will be back to the streets to agitate again as done in the month of December.

Recently, the Union along with Mawmluh Cement officer Association on February 17 handed over a letter to the MCCL authorities to apprise them of the pending salaries.

It may be mentioned that in December last, the union staged an indefinite hunger strike following the delay of the state government in addressing the issues of salaries and also urged the government to continue the operations of the factory.

Back in December, the union put up placards demanding the release of 15-month salary which is 5 months salaries with effect from November 2015 to March 2016 and 10-month salary with effect from February 2020 till date, 7 years of overtime with effect from 2013 till date, arrears of pay revision with effect from April 2018 till date. The union has also demanded the release of medical reimbursement and other welfare activities.

The union after a few days called off the protest following an assurance from Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma that financial assistance will be released sometime in the month of December.
