VIJAYAWADA: The AP State Government Contract, Outsourcing Employees Federation on Sunday demanded regularisation of the contract and outsourcing employees working in the government sector and provide job security to the employees.
At a meeting organised here, federation president AV Nageswara Rao said that there were about three lakh contract employees working in various government institutions. The GO 146 was not being implemented in some institutions, he added.
He also said that the extension period, which was for a year earlier, had been changed to three or six months, instead of regularisation, and demanded implementation of Pay Revision Commission (PRC), interim relief (IR), dearness allowance (DA), health cards and 180-day maternity leave for female employees.
The other demands included provision of GO 146 to employees of AP Housing Corporation, raise in the payscale for all the employees, job security for the employees in NREGS, and stop discrimination against the contract and outsourcing employees in various government institutions.
