Sub: Harassment and victimisation of Shri Shashikant Singh
We write to you behalf of our member, Shri Shashikant Singh, who is a sub-editor in “Yashobhoomi”, Hindi daily. We are given to understand that ever since Shri Singh has raised a demand for being paid the benefits under the Majithia Wage Board Award, which has been upheld by the Hon’ble Supreme Court vide its order dated 07.02.2014, you have unleashed a campaign of victimisation and harassment against him.
Among other things, you have suddenly placed Shri Singh on a shift whose timings are between 12 noon and 7 p.m. It may be noted that in the 12 years of his service, Shri Singh was never placed in a shift with such timings. Furthermore, this shift did not exist earlier and has been created especially for me. Also, I am the only sub-editor to be placed in this shift. This has been done primarily with a view to prevent him from pursuing various issues that he has raised in the office of the Labour Commissioner, Mumbai.
Furthermore, out of the blue, you have recently directed Shri Singh to submit all his reports/journalistic work in long hand. He is the only working journalist in your establishment who has been issued such a direction. This action is totally mala fide, unwarranted and uncalled for and constitutes an Unfair Labour Practice, which please note.
Please be advised that the Union will be constrained to draw the attention of the Hon’ble Supreme Court to this campaign of harassment in July 2016 if you do not immediately abandon your ill-advised and illegal campaign against Shri Shashikant Singh.
