Union seeks cancellation of illegal appointment

ITANAGAR, May 21: The All Arunachal Pradesh Workers’ Union (AAPWU) has urged the power commissioner to cancel an illegal appointment it alleged was made in the power department’s Dumporijo subdivision.
The appointment was made “without obtaining codal formalities or DPC/trade test and other proceedings, depriving contingency/casual workers who have been working under the department for many years,” the union stated in a representation to the commissioner.
The AAPWU said its Upper Subansiri district unit would launch an indefinite tool- and pen-down strike against the appointing authority if its demand is not met.
