Wage Board term needs to be extended: Afrasiab

LAHORE- Chairman Seventh Wage Board Award for newspaper employees, Justice (retd) Raja Afrasiab has said the wage board cannot function without approval of extension in its term by the government.

Afrasiab said that he had accepted the job of the Chairman to protect the rights of both employees and employers with Sincerity. “I have no favorite among employers or employees nor have I any personal motive,” he said.

To a question, he said that the announcement of interim relief by the board had been a success. However, newspaper owners wasted much time of the board by boycotting its proceedings, he added.

The board if given extension by the government would give a balanced award acceptable to both parties, after collecting all relevant evidence from the two sides throughout the country, he said.
