The UT administration has enforced 'no work, no pay' for the members of the UT Powermen Union, which had given a call for observing a one-day strike on Friday.
Though the union has decided to go on strike to support their long-pending demands, the officials of the administration claimed that they have always been sympathetic to the genuine demands of the electricity employees and there is no cause for any strike by the employees. The employees have been advised to attend duty and the defaulting ones would be liable for other disciplinary action.
According to UT superintending engineer MP Singh, necessary arrangements for maintaining the continuity of power supply has been made, but chances of failure of power supply due to any untoward incident cannot be ruled out.
The department has requested the public to cooperate and contact various complaint centres in their area for electricity complaints. Besides, they can also contact the control room. The public is also requested to keep a vigil on the electricity lines and in case they find anyone indulging in sabotage they must inform the police control room.
