Patiala, May 31
The outsourced workers of the Patiala Municipal Corporation, along with Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, today held a protest at the civic body’s office here in support of their demand for regularisation.
Sanjeev Kangar, a representative of the outsourced workers, said, “Over 400 outsourced workers are providing their services to the Municipal Corporation. Of these, 250 have been working for last several years. We want the MC to regularise their services.”
He said the workers were risking their lives and giving services during the Covid-19 pandemic. But they are being paid just Rs 7,000 per month, said Kangar. “This is a meagre amount. The MC should address our issues and regularise the services.”
