CITY: (CDA employees reject bifurcation of CDA)

ISLAMABAD: The employees of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) held a protest demonstration here in Aabpara Chowk on Thursday.

Hundreds of employees of the CDA including central office-bearers of the CDA Mazdoor Union and some labour leaders of various Labour Unions of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, who came in sympathy of the employees of CDA, participated in the protest.

CDA Mazdoor Union’s leader Ch Mohammad Yaseen, said that CDA in the wake of Local Government elections held in Islamabad, is proposed to be divided while the workers are feeling unrest due to non-protection of their guaranteed rights being availed by them presently which they received through bilateral negotiations during last couple of years.

He said the present administration of the CDA is not taking adequate steps for the satisfaction of its employees because of non-implementation of their agreed demands under the law, i.e. regularization of Daily-wage/muster roll employees, employment of CDA employees’ sons, which has indeed adversely resulted in causing serious anxiety amongst work force. We believe in bilateral dialogue for the resolution of disputes and have never disturbed industrial peace in the capital.
