Imphal, Dec 14: While the downed prepaid counters of Electricity Department has been opened from today, the Manipur electricity employees union (MEEU) still continues their cease work strike demanding their regularization of muster roll and work charged employees of Manipur State Power Distribution Corporation Limited (MSPDCL) at Keisampat. Speaking to media persons, one of the employees said the union members had already met the Commissioner and discussed their demands and issues to which the Commissioner gave them assurance that the matter will be taken up with the Chief Minister personally stating that the demands are legit. The employee also said that despite the current unstable situation, the Chief Minister have not given any positive response so far to the union. Instead of a written assurance, verbal assurance has been received which the union consider very unfortunate but will wait for the result, the employee added. The union threatens to continue the cease work stir at the Corporation complex which began from December 6, 2016, until their demands for service of muster roll and work charged employees is regularized at the earliest. The union has been demanding the government to regularise the service of muster roll and work charged employees since 2014 whereas the state government has regularised the service of muster roll and work charged employees for some other departments of the state. Manipur State Power Distribution Corporation Limited has 38 muster roll and 305 work charged employees.
