Today’s talks between KSEB chairman and trade unions failed to resolve the issues. No decision was made in the discussion. We were asked to say what we had to say, and the union leaders responded that it had been said. He also demanded that the management be prepared to rectify the unilateral approach.
Meanwhile, KSEB has withdrawn the suspension of Executive Engineer Jasmine Banu. The suspension was lifted with a stern warning. However, the management said the disciplinary action would continue. They may be shifted to Sitathottu in Pathanamthitta.
During the discussion, the leaders of the organization demanded that the suspension be withdrawn and that the anti-woman remarks of the board chairman be withdrawn and a show of remorse be expressed. CMD was not present at the discussion. The leaders of the organization said that the strike would continue as the demands were not fully accepted.
