Sanitation Workers Protest in Bangalore

Contract Sanitation workers of Koramangala and surrounding areas of Bangalore are worried about the unpaid DA of Rs.32.50 declared by the government, non-payment of monthly and minimum wages and are preparing for a struggle for their regularisation while careerist unions are preparing to honour the CM for the announcement of the mirage of appointment of 4000 sanitation workers. CM Siddaramaiah has staged a game of deception by declaring 22% reservation for dalits in scavenging work. It is nothing but a cruel joke. Can the CM or any of his stooges show us people of any caste other than dalits involved in scavenging work in any part of our country?

A meeting of sanitation workers was addressed by Com. Balan, state president of AICCTU in Karnataka on 9th July 2014. AICCTU is demanding regularisation of all contract sanitation workers, presently on employment, without any age bar.
