LAHORE: The Federal Revenue Alliance Employees Union (FRAEU) has decided to raise voice for class-4 employees of the Federal Board of Revenue.
A meeting of the FRAEU members was called on to outline a strategy to discuss misbehaviour of the RTO high-ups towards lower staff and a delay in promotions.
FRAEU President Naeem Shah presided over the meeting. Vice presidents and other members also attended the meeting. The president sought suggestions from the members to address the issue.
All members urged the president to take practical steps instead of writing letters as the chief commissioners did not respond.
A few weeks ago, class-4 employees had complained that the RTO chief commissioner and other high-ups misbehaved with them. FRAEU had assured the complainants that a meeting would be held with the chief commissioner. FRAEU wrote letters to the chief commissioner, but to no avail.
The FRAEU president has decided to hold a protest demonstration in the next week. He said the Departmental Promotion Committee held a meeting around two months ago, but the RTO-I Lahore chief commissioner hindered promotions. He also said that a class 4 employee was hospitalised due to the misbehaviour of high-ups. He added that FRAEU was the only representative of the FBR employees and all steps would be taken for their rights.
