WPC- Informal sector workers network supports the CTU call on Aug 9th in principle

The Working Peoples Charter Network, representing over 100 small and medium organisations working with informal sector and migrant workers in various states in India extends an ‘in- principle support’ to the call of the National Platform of Central Trade Unions to observe 9th August as “SAVE INDIA DAY”.

It also wholeheartedly supports Scheme workers unions/federations (Anganwadi, ASHA, Mid Day Meal etc) call for two days strike on 7th and 8th August 2020.

The WPC Network supports the CTU call to oppose rampant privatization of public services. At the same time, WPC also calls upon all its members and also the CTUs to actively focus on the critical issues facing the informal sector workers, especially migrant workers in the current situation and to press for change to deal with the life and death issues facing this sector which comprises over 400 million today.

Accordingly the WPC will support the demands set out for Aug 9th and also add three critical demands of the informal sector workers:

Ensure that all workers working in the informal sector are covered by the ESIC to make sure that they have minimum health protection. This also means that ESIC must be strengthened, the hospitals and care improved.

Ensure work and a minimum wage of not below than Rs 18000, for ALL workers

Take housing for informal workers as a policy priority and work on centre-state solutions to make sure all workers and their families have habitable, safe, viable and affordable housing in all cities.

WPC units will actively demonstrate their support in the different states.

In other states also similar actions will be organized. Updates will be available on twitter and on the website: www.workingpeoplescharter.in
