THE CONTRACT LABOUR (Regulation and Abolition) ACT, 1970 stipulates that contract employees can be employed only in temporary or occasional jobs but not in regular jobs.
But what is the status today?
Doctor or Pharmacist, College Professor or Bus Driver; Engineer or Machine Operator; Data Entry Operator or Software Programmer all are hired on contract basis, not only in private Sector but also in public Sector:
Contractualization is boosted up by destroying livelihoods of crores of farmers, small traders, weavers and fishermen and adding them to the reserve army of labour. Self-reliance of our economy is sacrificed to assure fat returns to multinationals and broker capitalists like Ambani, Adani and others. Government is also amending the laws in favour of contractualization.
Capitalists treat the law enacted to regulate and abolish contract system as toilet paper. No contractor or capitalist has been punished for Violations of law or mass killings of workers in accidents. The courts in general have ruled in favour of contract system. By ignoring violations in contract system, courts, in effect, have legalized the contractualized exploitation of working class.
While fighting for job regularization, equal pay, safety in workplace and other interim demands, we should break free from the confines of legal struggles and organize ourselves as a strong trade union. Only by overthrowing the government of capitalists for capitalists and establishing a government of workers for workers we can find a lasting solution to our problems. Only a union with a revolutionary program can lead us in this path.
The claim that contract employees can not form trade union is nonsense. We asserted the right to form union for IT employees, shattering the dreams of capitalists. We can unionize contract employees as well and put an end to the wage slavery that has encircled us.
On this basis, four all India level trade union organizations have joined hands to raise our voice against issues facing contract workers. As the first step, we have decided to form All India Contract Worker Unions Confederation and conduct a Conference and Public Meeting in Chennai. We invite all workers to join these events in great numbers.
