GUWAHATI, July 3 � The Sadou Asom Sangbad Madhyam Karmachari Sangha has urged Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to resolve the long standing demands of the scribes including implementation of the Majithia Wage Board recommendations.

The Sangha has also served an ultimatum to the effect that it would approach the Court if its demands are not met by August this year.

The Sangha in a memorandum submitted to the Chief Minister expressed dissatisfaction over the failure of the media houses in implementing the Majithia Wage Board recommendations and insisted upon him to take the necessary steps in this connection.

It needs to be mentioned here that the labour department had formed a committee on February 21 which was supposed to submit a report on the implementation of the Majithia Wage Board recommendations in different media houses within six months.

�But the labour department has not even convened a meeting of the committee even as the term of the committee is about to expire,� said the Sangha.

The other demands of the Sangha include pension for journalists, plugging the loopholes in the journalist medical welfare scheme, ensuring security of life of journalists and inclusion of electronic media workers in the Minimum Wage Act as well as amending the Act to ensure them minimum wages of Rs 10,000 per month.
