KARACHI: Members of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) backed labour union of Pakistan Steel Mills and their children held a protest demonstration on Thursday outside the Karachi Press Club against non-payment of two-month salaries.
Children were carrying placards and banners and raising slogans against Steel Mill administration.
Talking to PPI, President of Pakistan Steel Employees PML-N backed union Ghulam Shabir Mangi said Pakistan Steel Mills administration has been delaying to pay salaries to employees. He said when workers demanded their due rights, the administration issued them show cause notices.
Mangi said the federal government has issued a bailout package for restoration of Steel Mills and payment of salaries to the employees. He said Pakistan Steel was a profitable institute which is now stands on the brink of collapse due to wrong policies of past government.
He said present government is serious to run the Steel Mill but some black sheep are conspiring to close it or privatize it for peanuts.
He demanded of the government to help them in getting their salaries and withdrawal of show cause notices.
