CITU stages stir against govts

Staging a protest against the Governments for their unfriendly policies, the CITU members took out a procession in the main streets of Madikeri on Tuesday. The procession which started from Gandhi Maidan culminated at Deputy Commissioner’s office where the protesters handed over a memorandum to the DC.

The members said that the Governments have pushed citizens of the nation into hopeless situation by increasing the prices of not just essential commodities but also petroleum products.

“The government has outsourced almost every departmental work on contract basis. Due to this policy of the Government the working classes are being exploited,” they said and alleged that the Governments are backing out from introducing minimum wages, provident fund and other facilities to the employees working under direct contract system and for the workers working in private industries and factories.

CITU has opined that the Government has not been implementing the projects which have
the potential to general employment. It has not been agreeing to introduce the laws, which ensure social security to unorganised workers.

Demanding action from the Government to solve these problems the member said that the Government should either not outsource regular works or see to it that the contract based workers are given equal pay and facilities like the regular workers. They said that the purview of Minimum Wage Act must be extended
