Several employees unions on Thursday said that they are not happy with the Union Cabinet's approval to the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission.The All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) claimed the recommendations accepted were "not fully satisfactory", the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) resented the government's decision terming it "totally inadequate, disappointing and discriminatory towards lower level employees".
The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers (CCGEW), meanwhile, dubbed the Cabinet approval of the recommendations "anti-employee and pro-officer".The Joint Platform for Action (JPA) of Government and Associate Services Employees' Organisations stated the decision of the Central Government on pay commission reccommendations remained "contrary to the wishes of the Government employees".
