Federation of PTI Employees Union has filed a writ petition in Delhi High Court and is listed for hearing tomorrow.
Federation of PTI Employees Union files case against the arbitrary retrenchment of 297 staff members in Delhi High Court. Senior counsel Colin Gonsalves, advocate SD Thakur from Nagpur and MJ Pandey from Mumbai are accompanying the Federation for the case.
Federation Delhi general secretary Sujata Mathur says, “we have filed a case in the High Court and it has been sent to Chief justice for special mentioning and we are hopeful that from tomorrow only the case will be heard.”
“The arbitrary policy of the management didn’t follow the rules of retrenchment. The rule says ‘last Come, first go’ and in violation, the opposite was done by the management. As a result of that staff members serving for the last 30 years have been retrenched,” says state general secretary, Balram Singh.
PTI Employees Federation was collecting the details of all the employees retrenched and today they filed the writ petition successfully.
The Federation is confident about the case and has submitted the annual balance sheet of the PTI for 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 in response to the claims of PTI running in loss. The balance sheet shows that in these years PTI has only gained no loss.
Sujata Mathur says, “We are very confident about the case and we have full faith in our judicial system. We will get the Justice.”
