After the successful mobilisation of stationmasters at Pakistan Railways, the signal staff have taken action for the improvement of their working conditions. Monstrously exploited, and working according to pay scales which have not changed since 1974, the workers are organising to struggle for their rights.

After the successful mobilisation of stationmasters at Pakistan Railways, the signal staff have taken action for the improvement of their working conditions. The exploitation of capitalism has forced the signal workers to break regulations in order to maintain the efficiency of Pakistan Railways. The workers are on duty for 24 hours at a time. If there are any problems the signal workers can be called in for work. A team of three workers is responsible for the maintenance of seven stations. In order to complete their tasks the workers have to travel by road rather than by train, as is stipulated in the regulations.

 

The Struggle continues!
