Amendment to labour laws opposed

The All India Trade Union has opposed the proposed amendment to labour laws. The members of the trade union under the leadership of district unit Congress staged a protest in front of the DC’s office on Friday.

The protesters took out a protest rally from AITUC district office and passed through Hanumantappa Circle and M G Road and culminated at the DC’s office.

The labourers shouted slogans against the Central government, for proposing to amend the labour laws  and submitted a memorandum to Additional DC Vaishali.

Labour Union Working President Gunashekhar said that though a plea has been submitted to the Central Government, to regularise the services of those who have served for more than 10 years under contract system. The protesters also opposed FDI in railways. 

CPI district Secretary Renukaradhya said that there are two classes in the society, namely the working class and grabbing class. The latter is holding power in its hand today, he said.

The protestors urged the Central government to scrap the proposal to amend the laws. Sectors like Banking, Railway, LIC and defence should not be privatised. The services of Panchayat employees who have completed 10 years of services should be regularised. 

The other demands include: payment of minimum of Rs 15,000 as monthly salary along with medical allowance and gratuity to workers in un organised sector, scrapping of commission system for Asha workers, sites and BPL cards for all labourers. 

Labour Union district President Abdul Jabbar, leaders Ramu, Kadur Manjula, N C Obaiah, Vijayakumari, Indumathi and others were present.
