Hyderabad: Electricity employees unions have decided to go on a strike from April 17 to press for their demand of pay revision. The talks between Telangana State Power Employees Joint Action Committee and managements of power utilities have failed here on Wednesday.
After a massive dharna on March 24, the managements had invited unions for another round of talks on various demands.
The managements stuck to their earlier decision of offering a six per cent hike in salaries of electricity employees. The deadlock continued over conversion of EPF to GPF facility for employees appointed between 1999 and 2004 and demands of artisans in the power utilities. JAC leaders said that employees were disappointed over the stand of managements on the pay revision commission, which is pending from April 1, 2022.
