JAMMU: J and K PWD Casual Labourers Union held a protest in front of Chief Engineer, PWD (R and B) Department demanding regularisation policy for the workers engaged after 1994.
Raising slogans in support of their demands, the protestors urged the government to frame regularisation policy for all causal workers, who are working in the department for the past over a decade. They also demanded release of wages under proper wages head.
President of the Union, Satish Sharma expressed anguish at the treatment meted out by the previous State Government by making false promises for regularisation of casual labourers working in PWD (R&B).
Their demands include regularisation of all the casual labourers/need based workers who have completed seven years of services in the department, creation of separate head of wages to meet out the wage expenditure, clearance of the pending wages and enhancement of wages from Rs.150 to Rs. 400 per day.
He appealed to all casual labourers of PWD (R&B) and PMGSY Department to come forward and join struggle for justice.
“Number of committees, sub committees and high level committees were framed by the government and Governor to resolve our long pending issues but every time our files were seen gathering dust in the secretariat. Such a move of the previous government was mere an eyewash,” he said.
Others present in the protest were Bhanu Partap Singh-Vice President, Sanjeev Suri-General Secretary, Shibu Singh Jamwal-Circle President, Sahil Kumar, Yograj Sharma, Yougesh Singh Bahu, Sunil Satoo, Nareh Kumar, Rohit Kumar, Ravi Singh and Himmat Singh.
