12 workers of Rockman, Satyam go on fast

Dehradun, April 23
Twelve workers of Rockman and Satyam companies launched an indefinite fast at the Parade Ground here today.
Addressing a press conference, Amit Kumar, a leader of an employees' union, said they were disappointed with the response of Chief Minister Vijay Kumar Bahuguna whom they met yesterday.
"When we informed the Chief Minister about a meagre salary we are getting (Rs 5,000), he replied that none of the worker in the SIDCUL area was getting this much salary. He asked us not to spoil the atmosphere of the capital city and the SIDCUL," he said.
Amit Kumar further said if the administration failed to decide on their main demand of the reinstatement of suspended and dismissed workers in two days, they would again hold a march to the Secretariat, where they would stage a dharna and would not lift it till they get final answer on their demands.
He said the Additional Secretary, Labour Department, had also given them an assurance to discuss the matter with both managements of the companies.
