The Karnataka Shramika Shakti, a confederation of industrial workers and pourakarmikas, held a protest rally demanding service weightage for contract labourers, here on Saturday. Trade union leader S Balan said contract labourers from Mysore and Bangalore, who had been deprived of benefits under the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act of 1971, have come forward asking for the implementation of the rule.
