Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL) headquarters in Shillong.

The Coordination Committee of Registered MeECL Employees Associations and Unions (CCORMAU) has said the employees of the Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL) would launch a series of protests against non-receipt of salaries.

The CCORMAU in a meeting on Friday in Shillong decided to launch the agitational programmes from December 15.

The MeECL employees will resort to a ‘pen down’ strike on December 15.

The salaries of the MeECL employees have remained pending for the last two months.

On December 16 and 17, the executive committee members of the CCORMAU would stage a hunger strike.

On December 21, the employees will suspend all maintenance works during office hours from 10 am to 4 pm.

On January 12, the non-factory workers will go on a mass casual leave and march to the State Secretariat to press for fulfilment of their demand.

On January 18, the employees’ organisation will launch a total non-cooperation movement involving all – from the peon to the chief engineer.

There will be total shutdown of service and non-cooperation from January 22 in the event of non-disbursement of salaries even till that time.

They are also opposed to the proposed outsourcing of services of the debt-ridden public sector company to private players.
