Jamshedpur, September 28: President of Intuc Jharkhand, Rakeshwar Pandey announced that the re-registration process of nearly 980 trade unions will begin shortly.
Incidentally, after the formation of a separate Jharkhand state from Bihar in the year 2000, the Bihar government had cancelled the registration of 980 unions of Jharkhand, because the government was not getting annual returns.
Addressing media at Tinplate Workers Union auditorium, Rakeshwar Pandey said, “After the cancellation of the registration of unions by the Bihar government, he kept on making efforts but without any success. Even meeting Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren raised the issue but to no avail.”
In this regard, he said that he has told all the union office bearers to start the process of registration again.
He also informed that out of 980 unions in Jharkhand, 127 unions are of INTUC.
“The government is doing injustice to the workers. The government is not worried about the poor and the laborers, whereas the workers do all the construction work in the world,” alleged Rakeshwar Pandey.
He said that in many companies and private institutions, workers are not even able to get minimum wages, while their demand is that every worker should get a salary of at least 25000 months. On the other hand, Jharkhand State President Rakeshwar Pandey said Intuc organization has to be strengthened in the state. For this, the process of formation of district unit in the state has been started. So far, presidents have been announced in 8 districts. District units will be formed soon.
