SHILLONG, Aug 31:
Registering strong protest against the highhandedness of a senior officer against a staff, the office of the Commissioner of Transport at Law – U – Sip Friday wore a deserted look as if curfew has been imposed with not a single staff right from the officer’s rank to the peon level attending office for the two days.
The reason thereof, this sudden uniform strike taken up by the staffs is to show strong protest against the alleged highhandedness of the Commissioner against one lady staff of the office. The incident took place on Wednesday (August 29).
The staffs have boycotted work on Thursday and Friday to express their strong opposition on the act exhibited by the senior officer to her subordinate staffs.
“We have boycotted work and no one is ready to join work in these two days. We have taken this step because of the highhandedness of the Commissioner against one of the subordinate employees of the office”, one of the department staffs (on request of anonymity) informed.
