The joint action committee of the Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) staff protested against the alleged failure of the government and the management to implement the June 18 agreement regarding their demands.

A spokesperson for the committee said the employees were left with no option but to revive the stir which they had deferred following the June 18 accord, which was to be implemented within 15 days.

The management had not taken action on most of the agreed decisions and instead it had backed out of the decision to grant dearness allowance to employees recruited on a contract basis. The demand for bringing booking agents under contract staff had also not been implemented. The government and the management had betrayed the employees by not implementing the agreement.

The other demands include regularisation of the services of bus conductors recruited in 2002, release of all allowances and implementation of the High Court verdict with respect to the workshop staff regarding the 1986 pay scales, besides initiating the process for promotion of various cadres.
