The employees of Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) held a gate rally to protest for their long-pending demands outside the CHB office in Sector 9 here on Tuesday.
Held under the banner of Chandigarh Housing Board Employees Co-ordination Committee (CHBECC), the members demanded implementation of pension scheme, introducing a health scheme, among other demands.
Association president Shinder Pal Singh said, "None of our grievances were addressed in spite of numerous requests in shape of memorandum and meetings with CHB top officials. Our social and economic security is at stake after retirement since the amount given for pension is very minimal."
Several members of the association condemned the negative and adamant attitude of CHB chairman and officials of the Chandigarh administration for delay in implementation of the pension scheme. The association decided to hold another gate rally on March 3.
