The casual and contract workers of Hazaribag, numbering about 300 are on strike for the last one week demanding payment of wages for the last five months since March 2013.Despite several discussions, the BSNL management has not implemented the payment of minimum wage, social security measures like ESI, EPF etc.
BSNL management should become sensitive to the condition of the poor workers and settle the issues urgently. It is a shame that a PSU like BSNL is exploiting the toiling workers.
We demand the BSNL Corporate Office as also the Circle administration to immediately intervene and ensure that the workers are paid the arrears of wages and all other claims are settled with out further delay.
