Trash pickers assembled Outside PCMC to perpetuate Human Rights Day

Over 80 trash collection labourers assembled in calmness and peace to affirm that labour rights and workers’ rights are also human rights.

The assembly was to cue the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) of the Landmark UN Report on Freedom of Assembly and Association, publicised in 2016 which conveyed that “Labour rights are human rights, and the potential to practice these rights in the workplace is prerequisite for workers to enjoy a wide span of other rights, whether economic, social, cultural, political or otherwise.”

The assembly urged that the PCMC:

a. Enforce allowances for trash collection workers as per schedule titled ‘Employment under any local authority (except for gram panchayat)’.

b. Allowance arrears to trash collection workers since 24th February 2015.

c. Accelerate the payment of minimum allowance arrear claims pending since 2013

d. Trash Collection workers of Anand Nagar be conveyed full Covid allowance for 65 days since they were not taken up for labour for that duration by their contractor.

The PCMC has been hindering the commission of trash collection workers allowances as per the schedule titled “Employment under local authorities (except for Gram Panchayat)”.
