The Union members, under the leadership of MES Workers Union, Ambala branch, president Dev Rajmanna and secretary Gurbax Rai also submitted a charter of demands to Commander Works Engineer in the name of Defence Minister A K Antony.
The union members said, ''Various recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission are against the interest of the Defence Civilian Employees and that is why, we are forced to resort to agitation.''
