The employees of Pakistan Machine Tool Factory (PMTF) staged a protest against non-payment of salaries for the last three months, Geo News reported.
As many as 800 regular employees have not been paid their monthly salaries for the last three months while no benefits such as health facilities, bonus and earned leave, provident fund loans were allowed for the employees. Moreover, the retired employees were not paid their dues such as gratuity and even due provident funds were delayed in payment.
The workers shut the factory and did not allow the officers to go inside. They demanded that their salaries should be released on immediate basis along with the provision of benefits.
