‘Fill vacant posts’

LEPORIANG, Dec 17: The Joint Working Committee of the Arunachal Pradesh Trade Union (JWCAPTU) on Monday issued a notice to the legislative assembly secretary, seeking early appointment against the posts of peon and chowkidar which it said have been lying vacant for the last couple of years, following the retirement of the previous employees.
“Contingency/casual employees of the state assembly had approached so many times to your good office for appointment of two of them among the employees against the vacant posts on seniority and merit basis, but your good office had never care to address their grievances,” the JWCAPTU stated.
It said it would resort to phase-wise tool- and pen-down strike, starting 1 January, 2019, if the authorities fail to fill up the posts within 21 days.
