Pune: In less than two months after the transfer of chairman and managing director of Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) Tukaram Mundhe, the administration has decided to roll back yet another decision 
taken by him. 

At a recently held meeting, the PMPML administration decided to grant two casual leaves (CL) to employees. Mundhe had reduced the number of CLs from three to one per month. However, the workers union has demanded that they should be granted three CLs per month as earlier. 

The PMPML drivers and conductors have four weekly offs a month while, the office staff that includes high-ranked officials to clerks have six weekly-offs a month including second and fourth Saturdays. While making the changes, Mundhe cited the reason that more buses should ply on the roads. Despite fierce opposition from the workers’ union, Mundhe remained firm on his decision.

“Every employee needs leave for different reasons and Mundhe’s decision was putting pressure on drivers and conductors. Some of the officials were not happy with the decision back then. But with this new decision it will certainly provide some relief to the employees and officials,” said an official.

Meanwhile, Nationalist General Workers’ Union has asked the administration to rethink their decision and grant them three CLs in a month. 

“Another embarrassment for the employees was that the leave will be granted only after a thorough scrutiny. We have lodged a complaint with labour office about the leave issue,” said Sunil Nalawade, General Secretary of the union.
