PSB Employees Union demands appointment of permanent PSB DG
March 10, 2020 07:29 PM
Pakistan Sports Board Employees Union Tuesday threatened to start agitation if a permanent director general is not appointed at the PSB.
The PSB is without a permanent Dg since the retirement of Akhtar Nawaz Ganjera and the government has tried the different DGs on ad-hoc basis so far.
In their annual meeting, the union representatives blasted the PSB administration for not resolving the issues of the employees. They alleged that the administration had formed a committee to resolve the different issues the PSB employees were facing but they even did not lend an air to the recommendations of the said committee.
During a meeting at the Pakistan Sports Complex media centre, Union’s general secretary Farman Khan presented the audit report for 2019 that the general body passed unanimously.
Ghullam Taqi Khan Bosan, who presided over the meeting, said the PSB employees were suffering in absence of the permanent DG at the PSB.
“The employees are not being paid in time and have been deprived of medical facilities as well.”
He said at the time when there is a situation of medical emergency in the country due to coronavirus, the PSB employees even not getting any medical facility. Even the laboratories and medical stores at the PSB panel have stopped facilitating the PSB employees due to the non-payment of their dues by the organisation.
He said the PSB high-ups were forcing the employees to work at their homes instead and whoever defies them is being transferred to far-flung coaching centres as punishment.
They demanded of the Prime Minister and the IPC Minister to appoint permanent DG at the PSB and also resolved the issues of the employees including the holding of employees DPC, payment of medical bills and 10 pc ad-hoc relief in salaries that had been announced some eight months ago.
The union warned the high ups of stern action and agitation movement if their demands were not met.
