30k officers of central excise, customs to go on 3-day strike
New Delhi: About 30,000 officers of Central Excise and Customs will observe a 3-day nationwide strike beginning March 29, protesting against the working conditions and "delayed" promotions.
"The Inspectors and Superintendents of Central Excise will observe a countywide 3-day strike between March 29 and March 31 against the apathetic and indifferent attitude of the concerned authorities," All India Association of Central Excise Gazetted Executive Officers said in a statement.
Ravi Malik Secretary General of the Association said the strike call has been jointly given by Associations consisting Superintendents and Inspectors and work at airports and factories will suffer. He added that about 30,000 officials will go on strike.
