Hyderabad: The Joint Action Committee of Employees Teachers and Workers (JACETW), a representative body of government staff has resolved to serve strike notice to the government on October 17 or 18 if it fails to settle their demands on interim relief by then.
At an executive meeting here on Friday, the JAC leaders also decided to go ahead with ‘Chalo Secretariat’ programme on October 16. Prior to this, scooter rallies would be organised at district and taluk head quarters on October 13. The meeting resolved to stick to the demand for payment of 30 per cent interim relief as against 13 per cent offered by the Chief Minister. It noted that the Finance Minister did not invite them for the next round of talks to resolve the interim relief issue as promised but decided to take part in the talks if invited.
Differences cropped up at the meeting with a section of the leadership criticising the JAC top brass for postponing the ‘Chalo Secretariat’ programme to October 16 from September 25 as originally planned. The leadership however pacified the dissidents saying that the Chief Minister held talks a day earlier on September 24 appealing them to consider his offer and that the appeal from the executive head of the State should be respected.
