JAMMU: Continuing their struggle to demand conclusive negotiations on wage revision due since August 1, 2017 and also against IPO in LIC, work remained paralysed in LIC offices as all employees observed a daylong strike on Thursday under the banner Joint Front of LIC Class-1 Federation, National Federation of Insurance Field Workers of India and All India Insurance Employees’ Association across Jammu & Kashmir. The demonstrations were jointly led by Vijay Khajuria- Secretary Class-1 Federation Srinagar Division, Rakesh Magotra- Secretary National Federation of Insurance Field Workers of India Srinagar Division and Pawan Gupta- Secretary Northern Zone Insurance Employees’ Association Srinagar Division.Speaking on the occasion, leaders said that LIC employees oppose the proposed privatisation of LIC through the sale of its shares and increase in FDI limit for insurance sector to 74 per cent from 49 per cent. “Privatisation of LIC is an anti-worker, anti-people and anti-social step. Time and again, we workers have found that privatisation of a PSU has led to hundreds of workers getting thrown out of their jobs. Existing unions are busted by new capitalist owners and new workers are not allowed to organize themselves. The anti-worker step of privatisation thus weakens the entire working class,” they added.Others present on the occasion included Ravi Pandita, Romesh Chand, Rajesh Gupta, Jasbir Singh, Mahesh Abrol, Raj Kumar Sharma, Dinesh Kumar Sharma, Neelam Sharma, Rajinder Kumar, Vijay Kumar, Karnail Singh, Rajesh Kumar, Raj Kumar, Vishal Khajuria, Preet Suri, Shreshtha Sharma, Alkiya Sharma, Nanak Chand and Kishore Lal.
