The Chairman further said that the trade union action will be taken urging the authorities to approve the low-cost power station project which has already been submitted by his union.
Meanwhile, the University Joint Trade Union Committee said that its members are ready to report for duty with effect from tomorrow if the circular to increase their allowances is issued today.
