Punjab Govt acts tough against truck unions

Thursday, 24 November 2022 | PNS | Chandigarh

Taking serious notice of the harassment caused to the industrial sector by the already-dissolved truck unions in the state, Punjab Government on Wednesday ordered strict action against the unions violating the rules.


Regarding the problems encountered by the industry, Chief Secretary Vijay Kumar Janjua along with DGP Gaurav Yadav held a marathon meeting with senior officials of Transport, Industry, and Police Departments and took serious notice of the fact that despite truck unions already being abolished vide notification dated December 13, 2017, issued by Transport Department, “their high handedness is causing enormous implications for the industrial sphere thus creating a stumbling block in the progress of the State which owes its economic prosperity to the industry”.


The Chief Secretary directed the Transport and Police Departments to ensure strict compliance with the order of dissolution of the truck unions in 2017. The Transport Department was directed to take stringent action to cancel the permits, while the Cooperative Department was ordered to de-register such unions that are violating the notification dated December 13, 2017.


The Police Department has also been asked to issue instructions to its entire field staff regarding meticulous compliance with the orders. “If any truck operator harasses anyone, the police should register a case immediately. No truck union is allowed to work,” he added.
