Retrenchment of Contract Workers

PIB December 10/2012 : The Minister of Steel, Shri Beni Prasad Verma has said that in SAIL plants/units including Durgapur Steel Plant, job contracts are awarded to contractors through a tendering process for carrying out jobs of temporary, intermittent/seasonal nature as also for Projects & current Expansion and Modernisation activities as per organizational requirements. The contractor engages contract labour as per requirement and the terms and conditions of engagement are settled between the Contractor and the Contract Workers for the actual period of contract/engagement. As principal employer, SAIL plants are ensuring strict compliance of all the statutory obligations.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today Shri Verma said, the Government has not proposed to regularise the skilled and experienced contract workers in a phased manner. However, the issues pertaining to Contract Labour are dealt in terms of the provisions of the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970. Regularization of contract labour is not envisaged under the Act.
