Musheerabad: Talangana Jaatiya Majdoor Union (TJMU) has called upon RTC employees to participate in protests in front of all bus depots on April 24. The protests will be followed by 'Chalo Bus Bhavan' program to be held on April 29.
The founder secretary of the union Hanmanthu demanded that the state government address all the issues related to RTC employees at the earliest. He was speaking at a programme organised to release the poster for the protests and 'Chalo Bus Bhavan' here on Monday.
Speaking on the occasion, TJMU president Sudhakar, expressed apprehensions that the government is hatching conspiracies to destroy RTC. As part of its conspiracy, the state government is not making any efforts to recruit vacant positions, add new buses and address other issues of the RTC employees, he alleged.
The union leaders demanded double salaries for double duties and to take measures to prevent excessive workload and stress on the staff by the management. Excessive workload and stress are resulting in sudden deaths of labour, and the government has failed to respond to the issues, the union leaders lamented.
They also demanded the management not to allocate late night duties to women employees and to provide basic facilities to them at depots. They criticized the state government for not filling vacant ED positions and demanded an investigation on the corruption allegations of ED Ravinder.
They also condemned delays in the payment of salaries. The union leaders accused the recognized unions of RTC for failing in their duties to protect the interests of RTC employees. In an effort to pressurize the government and management on their issues, the union has decided to stage protests in front of all depots on April 24 and to conduct 'Chalo Bus Bhavan' program on April 29, Hanmanthu said.
He called upon the RTC employees to participate in protests in large numbers. He advised them to get ready to fight against the injustice being done to the employees and to get their issues addressed.
V Ravinder, PS Rao, EN Goud, PSS Rao, Sambaiah, Rakesh, Ramulu, Rajaiah, Murthi, presidents and secretaries of all depot-level unions and zonal in-charges and others were present on the occasion.
