Amaravati: A wave of strikes has engulfed Andhra Pradesh, with ongoing discussions between the government and various trade unions. While efforts are made to resolve existing strikes, new issues emerge, as the APNGOs announce their intention to strike over pending matters. The government, recognizing the urgency, has scheduled talks with union leaders today to address employee grievances. However, tensions persist as demands for salary revisions and pending benefits remain unmet. Bandi Srinivasa Rao, chairman of Ap JAC, emphasized the continuation of their movement if negotiations fail.
Following extensive discussions with employee unions and executive committees, plans for protest actions have been solidified. Black-badge memorandas will be circulated in offices on the 14th, with protests during lunch breaks on the 15th and 16th, and rallies in taluka centers on the 17th. Dharnas at Collectorates are slated for the 20th, followed by district-wide tours from the 21st to the 24th. A significant rally is planned in Vijayawada on the 27th, with the looming threat of a sudden flash strike if demands remain unaddressed.
