Cuttack: The employees’ association of Netaji Birthplace Museum in Cuttack has intensified its agitation demanding a pay hike. As a token of protest, the employees at the museum have started to wear black badges from Tuesday and threatened ceasework from December 19.

The employees alleged that it is now almost 16 years that they have been getting a meager consolidated amount which has led to severe resentment.

Though the museum trust had promised wages on the recommendation of the 6th pay commission in 2016, such announcement is yet to be implemented.

“Despite repeated complaints, the authorities of the museum trust have not taken any step to fulfill our demands. We will go on a strike from December 19 if things remain unchanged,” said secretary of Netaji museum employees association Arundhati Mishra.
