“Flour wet in pauper”, similar is the condition of Punjab Transport Department. One, the transport department is already running at a loss and above all, free travel for women has kept the smoke out of the department. The condition is that the drivers of the buses are also desperate to pay salaries to the operators.
Even today, the employees had threatened the department of blockade on getting the salary, but the department had already released the salary of all the employees to avoid any kind of gritty. Today, if the salaries of the employees were not released, the wheels of the buses would have been stopped.
Resham Singh, the head of the union of contract workers in Punbus-Roseways, said that only yesterday, a letter was sent to the department saying that if the salary does not come to the employees’ account by noon on Thursday, the workers will go on strike by jamming the wheel. But will go.
He said that after 7 days the last next month is going to start, but till now the salary of the previous month was not released. He said that the process of withholding salary has been going on for the last few months. This is causing problems for the employees.
The transport department is in loss due to the mistakes of the government. The union has written to the department several times to cancel the free travel of women. This will not cause loss to the transport, but no one agrees with it. Due to the free travel in the trains, there are long queues to get the oil poured.
