Trade unions will approach the Election Commission against the government’s decision to reject the proposal to club allowances with basic pay for PF deductions.
In a letter last week, the Labour Ministry has asked the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) not to go ahead with clubbing allowances with basic pay. The EPFO is expected to issue a notification in this regard. “We will definitely protest against this anti-worker move. We will soon write about this to the Election Commission as well as the Labour Ministry,” AITUC leader D.L. Sachdev told PTI.
