Social Security
Construction workers job and social security is under heavy fire from both Public Sector and Private Sector companies.

Unskilled workers are at the mercy of Petty-Contractors/SubContractors. Principal employers are very much reluctant to give legal protection to the unskilled workers specially. Those who constitute more than 73% of total construction manpower.

Day after day, year after year the permanent workers, employees, engineers, technitians numbers are reducing in the corporate & big construction companies, and in Central & State Public Sector Construction Companies.

Need of the hour is to protect the legal benefits & extend Social Security benefits to all categories of Construction workers as per Laws of the Land.

Construction Workers' (Regulation of Employment and Condition of Service) Act, 1996 must be ensured in the 29 States and 6 UTS to protect the construction workers from serious exploitation from all corner.

ILO can take initiative to motivate the Govt. of India in this arena.

Cooperation from Employers Side and workers side also is
very much essential for speedy and proper implementation of the provisions of the above mentioned Act.

Let us work together by heart.
