Shukla on 19th August 2016 and discussed about the issues of the casual and contract workers. The union representatives pointed out that the CMD orders on Minimum wage, EPF, ESI etc are not being implemented in UP(East) Circle. Only about Rs. 1,500/- / 2,000/- is paid which is only about one-fourth of the minimum wage. The direction of the CMD that the payment is to be made through cheque or to be put in accounts is being violated. EPF and ESI are not implemented. The Union representatives demanded that all these issues should be settled by implementation of the orders of the government and CMD BSNL. The CGM agreed to ensure that orders are got implemented.

 

18 August, 2016:Minimum Wage increased to Rs.14,055/- by Delhi Government.

The Kejriwal Government has issued orders increasing the minimum wage of the workers in Delhi from the present Rs.9,568/- to Rs.14,055/- an increase of over 50%. The wages for the semi-skilled is increased from Rs.10,582/- to Rs.15,471/- and skilled from Rs.11,622/- to Rs.17,033/-.

 

We congratulate the Delhi AAP Government for the fully justified increase. The Central Trade Unions have demanded the Central Government to increase the minimum wages to Rs.18,000/-. Though government agreed to increase toRs.10,000/-, even for that no orders have been issued. This is one of the demand in the 2nd September Nationwide Strike.
