|27.07.2016|| Our North Area’s brave Executives are struggling with the culture of Gundaism and Negative Attitude of Administration. They performed day long Dharna in front of GM(North) office at Sec-3 Rohini,Delhi. The Dharna was most successful . GS along with his CHQ colleagues and CS with his Circle Colleagues participated in it with more than 70 Area Executives of North .
But GM(North) escaped from his office for full day and did not show any courage to sort out the problem. We humbly appeal to GM(North) and Administration of Delhi Unit for kind intervention so that peace atmosphere and working environment may be restored at North area at earliest.
Now it is moral duty of all executives for extending full support in favour of our fighting executives of North Area. The Dharna programme is continued for today too at same venue. Therefore it is requested that executives of near by area whosoever may approach venue easily , may reach at Dharna Place positively. Please strengthen your own unity and fight against injustice.
Consequent upon the unwanted and shameful silence of administration of GM (NORTH) on the incident of manhandling with Sh. B.B.Raijada a meeting of furious executives of GM (North) was held on 25.07.2016 . Wherein all executives expressed their justified anger against negative attitude of GM(North) . It was resolved unanimously that TEAM North area will launch a protest action programme as one day long Dharna in front of office of GM(North) at Sector-3 Rohini, Delhi, on 26.07.2016 for fulfilling following demands:
Corporate office issued a letter to Delhi and Mumbai Unit wherein it has been asked to reply the current vacancy position of CAO in their respective units.
