LAHORE – Employees of Nawa-i-Waqt and The Nation newspapers in Lahore went on a pen-down strike for some hours Wednesday in protest over three-months of unpaid wages.
Their action brought the management to its knees, the managers agreeing to pay one month salary within five days.
The administration also promised to disburse the remaining pays soon.
Azam Chaudhry, President of Lahore Press Club, who is also the convener of a Joint Action Committee of journalists appreciated the staff’s bold move.
He said that if workers in other organizations gathered the courage to do the same, no media owner would dare to lay them off, cut pays and delay paying their salaries.
