According to him their requests on promotions, salaries and other benefits in a free and fair basis have been ignored with the new circular. Instead Cabinet approval has been granted to ‘Development Officers’ in an undemocratic manner and a circular has been gazette to this effect.
Among the steps taken by the Union against this ruling 20 complaints by graduates have been filed on 2.03.2012 under HRC/1108/12 and HRC/1109/12 to the HRC.
The complaint is against the Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration, Public Service Commission and National Salaries Commission requesting to cancel the Circular dated 14.02.2012 and to create a constitution safeguarding the rights of the employees considering their proposals issuing necessary instructions to the Government and the Government officers.
Mr Suriachchi added that they will launch a continuous struggle demanding an acceptable resolution.
