KARACHI (Monday, August 29, 2011) : CBA labour union protested outside KESC’s head office against the non-payment of salaries, Geo News reported. Seven people were injured when KESC guards allegedly opened fire to disperse the protestors.
According to CBA chairman Akhlaq Ahmed, workers were peacefully protesting outside the KESC head office demanding their four months salaries, when security guards opened fire at the demonstrators injuring seven of them. This sparked a mighty wave of agitation, he added.
Angry KESC workers hurled stones at the police deployed to disperse them. They tried to set a police truck and vehicles of the power supply company on fire.
On the other hand KESC spokesman said that the labour union attacked the head office and
they were the ones who started shooting at the building, not company guards.

    A query has been raised as to status of the former noncore NMS.

    In this regard this is to clarify that all the noncore NMS who did not opt for VSS were terminated by way of Retrenchment in February this year. They are no more in the service of the Company. All GMs/Directors may share this clarification with all the managers in their jurisdiction.
    Kesc management nay 1500 mulazmin ko bartaraf kar deya hai, Jin logon nay VSS accept nahi kiya tha, kesc management nay us agreement ki khilaf varzi ki hai Jo 26 July 2011 ko Govenor Sind or Commisinor Karachi nay management or mazdoron Kay darmeyan karwaya tha or court Kay stay order ko bhi nazar andaz kiya hai . Hum tamam media or Govt say appeal kartay hain keh is maslay Ka notis lay is bat ki tasdiqe management kesc say lay saktay hain or jald say jald notice layen. or tamam sayasi parties say request kartay hai is jado jehed may mazdoron Ka saath den kyon keh yeh mazdorn Ka mashi qatal hai.
