The Joint Action Committee(JAC) of Irrigation Engineers has decided to go on Pen-down strike in all Irrigation Punjab & Chandigarh offices on 09.08.2017 (Wednesday) and 10.08.2017(Thursday), by wearing black badges on their shoulders and unfurling black flags outside their offices, during these two days. This decision was announced by the Joint Action Committee of Engineers’ Forum after the Irrigation Engineers’ peaceful Dharna held in New Hydel Building,Sector-18,Chandigarh today.
