Chandigarh 24th Jan, 2019:- Thousands of Contractual Employees and Outsourcing Workers hold Maharally with their Families under the banner of All Contractual Karamchari Sangh, U.T. Chandigarh for voice of nearly 20000 workers for Regularization of services and Equality or Security of Tenure. The workers and their families raised protest against Chandigarh administration with slogans.
All Contractual Karamchari Sangh Chairman Bipin Sher Singh and President Ashok Kumar apprised that the contractual employees and outsourcing workers are working since 20-25 years in various departments of Chandigarh administration, Municipal Corporation and PGI etc. but no efforts have been made by administration to regularize their services and even there is no policy to regularize the services of contractual employees in Chandigarh till date.
The major demands of All Contractual Karmachari Sangh includes regularization of contractual employees, equal work for equal pay and non replacement of existing outsourcing workers in lieu of change of tender or contractor, to ban contract system resulting into exploitation of qualified youth and intelligentsia and equal work equal pay to NHM employees in Hospitals at par with SSA workers etc.
They said that Punjab Rules are being followed in U.T. Chandigarh and Punjab has already framed and implemented the regularization policy in the year 2011 by regularising the services of contractual employees who had completed 03 years of service. They asked then why there is disparity with Contract employees in U.T. Chandigarh.
Ashok Kumar said that five point agenda program in the form of Candle March, Black Flag March etc. had already been executed and in continuation this Maharally with Families is being done in support of their genuine demands.
Karamchari Sangh Secretary Parveen Kumar alleged that if their genuine demands are not met and meeting with Advisor ,Chandigarh administration is not been fixed shortly for demands then the indefinite Mass Strike will be held in near future along with 25 unions and their struggle, voice and fight will continue till the justice or policy is reached.
