'Seventh pay commission fails to address woes of employees'

Visakhapatnam: The seventh pay commission report has failed to address the welfare of employees, said president of confederation of central government employees and workers KKN Kutty.

Addressing a meeting on the seventh pay commission in the city on Sunday, Kutty slammed the centre for failing to look into the issues of the employees and warned that agitations would be launched to demand minimum pay as per the market prices.

He said that the commission had recommended that the minimum pay should be hiked from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000. However, considering the current market conditions, he said that minimum pay was not adequate. He said that a memorandum with 26 demands had been submitted to the centre. He warned that massive protests will taken out from September onwards if the government failed to address the issues of employees in the seventh pay commission.
