The protesting employees, however, put up resistance and continued marching towards the Governor’s House. Upon this, the security personnel used teargas shells and batons on them, and arrested more than a dozen of them.According to the KMC union chairman, the police arrested at least 28 employees. He said they would soon devise a future strategy after the release of all their arrested workers. It may be mentioned here that over 30,000 KMC workers are without salaries since the start of June. Other KMC union leaders said that according to an agreement, the management had to pay salaries of August in advance, but as the Sindh Finance Department had not released salaries, it was unlikely that they got paid.
