On Sunday, All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) requested the central government to check the insurance reform agenda and to pursue people-oriented insurance plans. It is a part of the resolution that is adopted on the final day of the 41st session of the Union on Sunday.
The trade union also shows concern over plans pursued by the Union Government in the name of telecom reforms. Privatization of gold mining was also divergent while the CBI probe was demanded on the supposed fraud of foreign currency derivatives.
AITUC also approved a resolution to fight for the equal opportunity for women. Insuring domestic workers under employees’ state insurance corporation and setting up the minimum monthly pension of Rs. 3,000 for home workers and giving a share of Swachh Bharat Cess to conservancy workers were among the demands.
To defend the interest of fishery, beedi, and coir workers, there should be an increment in wage and work days under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme by offering jobs in sectors such as plantation, cashew, and coir.
