The All Assam Media Employees Federation has appealed chief inister Tarun Gogoi to enforce implementation of the Majithia Wage Board recommendations, enact a law for protection of journalists, pension and health schemes for scribes, besides inclusion of electronic media workers in the Minimum Wage Act.
Prophets of doom have been proved wrong. They have been spreading rumours that there was no enthusiasm for the Wage Board Award among the newspaper employees. But on the contrary, hundreds of newspaper employees assembled to listen and interact with Advocates Parmanand Pandey and Colin Gonsalves on 16th May 2015 at Bhopal regarding the state of Majithia Wage Award.
Bhopal : I want to inform you that the contractual employees at Doordarshan News Bhopal are being harassed and exploited by Permanent staff, Employees say. They are repeatedly threatened to be sacked and are being given mental torture.
Assam : The Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) wants due benefits under the guidelines of the Majithia Wage Board to be offered to the journalist and non-journalist television channel employees across the country.
