Jamshedpur: Unorganized workers staged a demonstration in front of DC office to press for the demand of ESI Hospital and two dispensaries in Jamshedpur.
They have also demanded action against financial exploitation at different police stations for issuance of character certificates, and a ban on selling of illicit liquor being done with the tacit support of the police.
Unorganized Workers’ Union general secretary Sanjiv Srivastava and Youth Congress district vice president Rakesh Sahu led the demonstration.
On the occasion a six-point charter of demands was submitted at the office of deputy commissioner. The workers’ union said that more than 2 lakh workers from unorganized sector are earning their livelihoods in Jamshedpur.
The middlemen are fleecing thousands of rupees from the poor workers in the name of safety cards.
The union said that the regional provident fund office had asked the workers to file complaints regarding PF online instead of listening to the problems from the workers at the PF office.
The workers’ union urged the administration to act on the demands at the earliest.
