Contract labours are workers who maintain their families with the meagre wages they are getting. Even delay of one month in payment puts them in much difficulty and hardship. Now, they have not been paid wages for months. As per reply in the Parliament, there is no loss for BSNL. More than Rs. 8000 crore are saved yearly on wages due to retrenchment of about 80,000 employees through VRS. Then why not pay the arrears of wages?
BSNLCCWF has demanded the BSNL management to pay the wage arrears at the earliest.
