Meghalaya Governor clamps ESMA against EMRI staff stir

By Correspondent

SHILLONG, July 18 - Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy has promulgated the Meghalaya Essential Services Maintenance Act, which prohibits field staff of the GVK Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI) to go on a strike.

The order was issued in March this year and will be in force for six months. As per the order, Section 3 of the Essential Services Act was invoked in �public interest�.

The order came into effect even as EMRI employees staged a stir for fulfilment of their charter of demands.

The EMRI staff held a protest near the Additional Secretariat to press fulfilment of various demands like transfer, salary hike, replacement of old vehicles and taking over of the management by the Government.

Meanwhile, the 108 management has said a meeting, chaired by Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong, was held between the management and field staff a few days back.

Following the meeting, most demands were fulfilled, barring some where the Meghalaya Government�s role is required in management and where transfer of employees is concerned.

�GVK EMRI appeals to the employees on strike to come back to the main fold and serve the citizens of the State as has been the case for the last 10 years,� the EMRI stated in a release. It urged the employees to return to work and give the management reasonable time to resolve the pending issues.
