In a press release issued here on Saturday, the association said that its members would wear black badges during duty hours in all ITIs of the State from July 6 to 8 as part of the protest seeking implementation of the Thomas committee report.The association said that if the demand was not fulfilled, the members would stage a dharna in front of office of the Director of Employment and Training in Bangalore on June 9. All the ITIs would be closed that day. The office-bearers of the association would meet the Chief Minister and the Labour Minister on the next day.
