Don’t victimize contractual employees: SPYF

Gangtok, 03 Mar:

Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum [SPYF] has appealed to the State Government to stop victimizing contractual employees and focus on generating sufficient employment opportunities, respectable working conditions and salary hikes.

In a press release issued today, SPYF has said that hundreds of contractual employees are anxious after a note-sheet of the State Transport Department proposing the termination of contractual workers appointed from 2014-19,floated on social media.

SPYF has said that if the appointments were illegal then those involved in the recruitment process should also be held accountable. The government should also consider that many of the contractual employees in question are over 40 years of age, have families to feed with many dependent on them, the release adds.
