Rawalpindi: Some 2,400 employees of a Turkish firm Al Buraq the sub company of Rawalpindi Waste Management Company observed a complete strike on Tuesday over delays in salaries, stopping vehicles fuel and some other issues. They decided not to collect solid waste of the city and refused to drive their garbage collection trucks, to protest the delay in releasing their salaries. Following the lead of the drivers, sanitation staff of the company which works in two shifts endorsed the decision and also refused to work.
While talking to Correspondent most of the workers have viewed that they are seeking monthly salaries for past two month. They alleged that concerned authority is not paying any heed towards the issue despite repeated requests.
"Salaries are delayed every second month," complained the protesters who had chosen to gather in front of Al Buraq office. The protesting workers said that the company appears disinterested in resolving issue pertaining to their salaries.
