Struggle of temporary government workers in Meghalaya

Under the banner of Muster Roll Progressive Workers Union (AMMRPWU), the temporary government workers in Meghalaya have been fighting for their demands. They are demanding that they should be eligible for leave, earned leave, maternity leave facilities, as well as facility for upgrading their skills. They want their outstanding wages to the be paid and also want their service to be regularised as per their skills.

AMMRPWU had given their charter of demands to the Labour Minister on 11th December last year. When there was no response for ten months, they submitted a reminder petition. When even this was ignored then on 31th October, they declared that they will start their agitation.

On getting no official response to their petitions, the Garo Hills secretary of the AMMPRWU announced that workers will observe three day protest wearing black ribbons from 18th November 2019. They will come to work with black ribbons on their arms. If the government still doesn't heed to their demands, then they will have to strike work from December 2019.
