Casual workers want demands fulfilled by Dec 10
TURA: Muster Roll workers from Garo Hills under the banner of the All Meghalaya Muster Roll Progressive Workers’ Union (AMMRPWU) on Monday organised a rally at the Chandmary Playground in Tura followed by a procession to the Deputy Commissioner’s office.
During the rally, the workers unanimously demanded from concerned authorities the clearance of all their pending dues and fulfilment of other demands by December 10. The workers resolved that they would stage an indefinite strike after December 10 if it failed to do so.
Earlier, the workers had donned black badges to work, organised a sit-in demonstration and had gone on a mass casual leave for two days in a bid to get their demands fulfilled.
The workers are demanding regularisation of services, payment of dues on monthly basis, equal pay for equal work as per Supreme Court ruling including allotment of casual leave, EPF, ESI, bonus etc., as per the office memorandum of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (B) Department of 1996.
