The Tamil Nadu Government Employees Union (TNGEU) has sought
government's intervention in reinstating employees of Tamil Nadu State
Marketing Corporation Limited (TASMAC), suspended after they went on
strike on March 17 seeking salary hike.
Employees had been reinstated in some districts, while in others,
including Madurai and Chennai, they were still under suspension, said
TNGEU President K.Balasubramanian in Madurai on Wednesday night.
There were two lakh vacancies in the government departments and it was
increasing every year, he claimed.
The Union planned to hold a demonstration and rally at Chennai on May
7 to press their charter of demands including payment of arrears and
implementation of old pension scheme.
