KATHMANDU: Employees at the Sinamangal Customs Office, located within Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), have launched a strike from today.

Their primary grievance revolves around the demand for a collective transfer, which, they claim, has not received due attention.

These employees, who embarked on their protest with a set of five demands, including the mass transfer request, have decided to halt all activities related to cargo inspection and processing at the Tribhuvan Airport Customs Office, commencing today.

Should their demands remain unaddressed, they have declared their intention to suspend all cargo branch operations by tomorrow.

In a symbolic gesture of protest, they conducted a ‘pen down’ strike for three hours on the preceding Sunday.

They have also warned that if their demands are not met by September 13, they will announce the next phase of their protest.

The employees allege that during the investigation of a 61 kg gold smuggling case, some of their colleagues were subjected to arrests and intimidation.

A total of 137 employees had petitioned the government for mass transfers, citing an unsuitable working environment and psychological distress within the customs office.
