Mysore: Nov 6, 2012 DH News Service
The three-day fifth State-level anganawadi workers convention organised by Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) concluded with setting a few agenda here on Monday.

They insisted on providing minimum wage of Rs ten thousand along with government pattern retirement plans and regularising temporary workers in various government departments.

The anganawadi workers opposed the privatisation of children development scheme, permanenting workers as third grade and assistants as fourth grade government employees, increasing the annual income by 10 per cent along with governments establishing national level welfare fund to provide gratuity, pension and medical facilities.

Family members of deceased activists of workers’ unions were honoured on the occasion. Leelavathi P Rao, wife of late P Ramachandra Rao, daughter of late N K Upadhya- N K Sujatha, son of late N Ugrappa- Mohan Das, wife of late K V Srinivasan- Vasantha Srinivasan and wife of late N S Prabhakar- Sathyavathi were felicitated. Priyanka, daughter of CITU worker Sulochana, who recently passed away was presented with a cheque of Rs 25 thousand for her education.
