SIVASAGAR, Nov 20: The strike by Sivasagar Municipality Safai workers is set to extend for several more days as the latest round of tripartite talks among the workers’ leaders, Sivasagar Municipality Board (SMB), and Sivasagar district administration ended in failure. The workers are steadfast in their demand for a wage hike and CPF entry.

 

Kankana Saikia, the SMB executive officer, stated that the workers’ demands cannot be immediately implemented, as the daily-wage workers are unwilling to accept the PF contribution facility.

Ranjan Chowdhury, secretary of AITUC, Assam State Committee, reported a discussion with district commissioner Aditya Vikram Yadav, and both agreed on the need for an amicable resolution at the earliest. Chowdhury demanded that the Sivasagar Municipality Board publish a list of residents who top the list as municipality tax defaulters.

 

Additionally, he advocated for setting the minimum wage for a daily wage worker at Rs 18,000 per month, following the recommendation of the Indian Labour Commission, with the aim of advancing the Prime Minister’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
