Strike of 8th July deferred
As per decisions taken earlier by joint front of unions in LIC, officers and employees were to go on one day strike on 8th July 2015 besides other agitational programmes to secure a good wage revision and one more pension option.
On 29th June 2015, LIC management wrote to unions requesting them to withdraw the July 8 strike as they (the management) were making all out efforts to get the approval of the government for an early and satisfactory wage settlement.
The unions considered the request of the management and came to unanimous decision to defer the proposed strike (on 8th July) in view of management's positive response.
The unions will meet again later in the month of July to review the developments and plan for the next course of action.
However, it has been decided to hold demonstrations during lunch recess and submit a memorandum by the delegation of all Zonal leaders of the unions to the Zonal Managers on 8th July 2015 impressing upon the need for an early settlement of wage revision and other allied issues.
