PIA Joint Action Committee Again Announced Protest and Strike
Karachi (Sunday, December 20, 2015) – Today an important meeting of PIA joint action committee held in Karachi. After the meeting PIA employees action committee announced to start his protest movement again from tomorrow. This strike and protest were started some two week ago, when Government of Pakistan issued an ordinance regarding PIA. In this ordinance PIAC was converted into PIACL. Thus on December 6, 2015, Pakistan International Airline Corporation made Pakistan International Airline Company Limited.
This is first serious step toward the privatization of PIA.
All unions of PIA employees formed joint action committee to launch an protest movement against PIA’s Privatisation. Some two days ago the PIA worker’s leaders met with Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. But PM reject an proposal to withdraw the PIACL Ordinance.
Now all PIA employee will observe pen-down strike from Monday, December 21, 2015 (Tomorrow). While an press conference will be held tomorrow at 03:00PM.
