Covai Post Network


Demanding hike in salary, as many as 150 members of the Tamil Nadu Cooperative Bank Employees Association, staged a demonstration near Red Cross here on Monday.

K. Sanmughasundaram, the District Head of the Association said that the demonstration was held as a part of the State-wide protest.

“The Government should pass a resolution to pay ration shop employees on a par with the Tamil Nadu Tamil Nadu Consumer Products Stockists Association by the start of 2016,” he said.

He further added that the employees should be given pensions after retirement to benefit the family of the employees.

“The retired employees from the Primary Agricultural Cooperative Credit Society should also be given pension on empathy grounds,” he added.

The members further stated that they would stage indefinite strike from November 2 if their demands are not met within the November 1.

“We would also stage demonstrations in front of the Joint Registrars offices all over the state,” said Sanmughasundara
